In addition to course-specific and general subject guides, online guides have also been developed to support library instruction for Cornerstone and English 1102, as well as a generic library instruction guide. These guides are filled with tips for how to search the library catalog, databases and other resources, as well as how-to video tutorials, and more. Other resources include handouts, and direct links to databases from Galileo and E-Books from the library catalog. Additionally, most guides contain contact boxes with information on how to contact your librarian liaison, as well as online forms for making technology instruction appointments, research appointments, and for "asking" a librarian. If you still haven't discovered and explored the research guides available to you, we encourage you to check them out! You can access the Guides main search page from the Library Website by clicking the link "Research Guides".
To start off the spring semester right, the librarians have shared below direct links to some of the guides which support courses that are starting up now, including:
"Art History Survey Assignment" page which specifically addresses the assignments for Dr. Joiner's current Art History Survey course.
Guide for Undergraduates, as well two guides for graduate education students. Both the Guide for Undergraduates and the MAT Education Guide feature pages with selected resources, including recommended a Children's Books page.

There are currently two guides for English, both created by Dr. Arthur Robinson, Reference Librarian. The English Research Guide is more of a general guide for students enrolled in a variety of English courses, and includes a Reference page, and Authors page. The English 1102 Library Instruction Guide is a separate guide specifically for students taking English 1102 during spring 2012.
Complementary Care. The pages also feature contact info for Mrs. Dabbs as well as "Ask-a-Librarian" forms for questions.
The Theatre Arts Guide was developed by Arthur Robinson, liaison librarian to the theatre department. This general guide includes pages for Plays, Playwrights, Costume Design, and Musical Theatre. Additionally, it contains pages which specifically support the current or upcoming productions of the theatre department. The newest page supporting a specific production is The Philadelphia Story Guide.
The Library Instruction Guide is a general guide to all things related to library instruction and technology. This page includes various online orientations for students and faculty in the form of Prezi's, "how-to" video tutorials for searching the library online catalog, various video tutorials for searching particular databases (such as Academic Search Complete, JSTOR, and ERIC), as well as a library technology page where you can make technology instruction appointments, and an Information Literacy presentation which outlines the goals of the library's instructional classes and sessions.
