New Tool Provides Research Assistance

Research just got easier thanks to a new tool at the Richland College Library. LibGuides is a collection of searchable research guides built by librarians. These guides will direct you to authoritative print and online resources selected by librarians. For example, this general Research Guide will help you get started with most research assignments. We also have guides for specific classes and assignments, such as these guides for Fine Arts Appreciation and an English assignment on The Rebel as Hero.

Librarians aren’t the only ones who get to have fun. You can also contribute these research guides. Most guides allow you leave comments. Some even allow you to suggest or rank resources. See the RCHS Capstone research guide for examples of user-rated resources.

Instructors, if you would like a research guide for one of your classes or assignments, contact your Library Liaison.
