LibGuides: Facebook Meets Library Research!

The NCC Libraries are experimenting with LibGuides, a new web-based format for organizing and distributing information on library resources. The online LibGuides system could replace traditional paper handouts, saving money and natural resources.

Each LibGuide is designed to give you a customized description of library resources in a specific subject area. So far, the NCC librarians have created five LibGuides:

Biology – Yeast & Fermentation
Literary Criticism
Locating Resources for Your Argumentative Research Paper
Principles of Sociology

All are available from the “Guides and Tutorials” page of the Library’s web site, which is listed under Research Guides.

Please take a look and tell us what you think! You can send the librarians feedback by answering the survey located on each LibGuides page.
