BAS Business-Library Resources: LibGuides

What is a Libguide?

A LibGuide is a website that provides students with information on a specific topic. Some LibGuides facilitate access to a variety of information resources such as books, articles, videos, and web pages. Others serve as how-to manuals for tasks such as conducting research or citing sources.

A LibGuide can be associated with a particular course, or with a specific course assignment. Or, a LibGuide might serve as     an online brochure of the resources and services provided by a computer lab or tutoring center.

"Techie" ability, such as knowledge of HTML or JavaScript code (although it can be helpful), is not needed to create a LibGuide. All that's required is a basic awareness of best practices for website design, plus a little imagination.

Please contact Shamsha Karim if you have an idea for a accounting-related LibGuide that can help your students succeed.
