History - Library Resources: LibGuide Collaboration

What is a LibGuide?

MDC Learning Resources Faculty and Staff have access to a special software application that makes it easy to create web-based research guides for students. Known as LibGuides, these websites serve as portals to carefully curated information resources.

Some LibGuides facilitate access to a variety of information resources such as books, articles, videos, and websites on a particular topic. Others serve as how-to manuals for tasks such as conducting research or citing sources. A LibGuide might be associated with a particular course, or with a specific course assignment.

if you have an idea for a history-related LibGuide that can help your students succeed, please contact Jenny Saxton, For LibGuides on other topics, find your discipline's library liaison, or contact a librarian at your campus.

LibGuide Examples

Here are a few examples of MDC LibGuides:
