Fall Update: New Location and Look for Library Course Guides

by Matt Stevons on 2019-11-21T08:00:00-06:00 in Library News & Updates | Comments

Did you know every course at PG links to either a library research guide focused on a topic area related to the course's content or a resource guide with customized resources, required or suggested reading links, and/or research tips just for that course?  These research guides are created by the PG Library to aid your research and access things like assigned readings and recommended databases more easily.  

For quicker access to these guides, starting on Friday, November 22, 2019, the Library link will be located in the toolbar in every classroom!  After the update, you can easily access curated Library resources for your course with fewer steps than before. To find your course's guide:

  • In your course's toolbar, click More Tools, which will expand a menu of options.
  • Select the Library link, which is always at the bottom of the list.  

The guide will open in a new browser window or tab, so you can keep working in your course without navigating away from the section you are in. 

Please note, some courses may still also list the Library link under Content >> Academic Tools.  This is the same link and resource.  These links are being phased out over time, so make sure to learn our new location going forward. 

Also rolling out on Friday, November 22, all of the Library’s topic, course, and resource guides (like database walkthroughs) will share the same design and navigation as well.  Similar guides (like nearly identical guides on general topics like business or nursing) will also consolidate to one guide. Some small changes to the search box on course guides and the Library's homepage will also appear to help clarify tool purpose and functionality.
