Online Course Guides

Upon request, your subject specialist librarian or the librarian teaching your class can create an online guide designed around course content or research assignments. It would contain information relevant to your students, such as links to Research@UWW, databases, articles, and free online resources, as well as search tips and information about services such as UW Request and interlibrary loan through ILLiad.
