The University Library is pleased to introduce its new and improved Research Guides, which are now live.
Library employees have spent the summer updating content and giving a facelift to the library’s Research Guides. There are now discipline and course specific guides which have been carefully curated by librarians to highlight the best resources in each discipline. These Research Guides will save you time by directing you to selected, high quality, scholarly resources in your discipline(s).
The Research Guides now have added functionality, including a mobile-friendly interface and built-in help features.
To take a look at the new guides, go to the University Library homepage and choose “Research Guides” under the Tools and Services column on the left-hand side, or go directly to http://libguides.usask.ca.
If you’d like more information on using a specific Research Guide, please contact your liaison librarian.
