Library guides, also known as LibGuides, are a content management and information sharing system used to "curate knowledge and share information by creating online guides on any topic, subject, course, on any process, on anything" (Springshare).

Archer Library uses LibGuides in a variety of ways to support teaching and learning at Ashland University.

  • Library Instruction
    Reference librarian's often develop a library guide for instruction sessions.

  • Course Support
    Guides may be created for your course and feature library resources available for assignments.

  • Research Help
    General guides are in place for topics such as Art, Business, Education, and Religion.

  • Instructional Resource Center
    The IRC has a guides for children's literature, Banned Books Week, and more.

  • General Library Information
    We also have resources for copyright information.

Library guides are available for use on or off campus. Some content, such as article resources or e-books, may require authentication prior to viewing.
