Guides are curated web pages created by our library staff. Many people who are starting to explore a topic aren’t sure where to start – there are so many options and it can be overwhelming.

Guides are a starting spot for students looking for more information on a particular topic in the collection. A guide will typically include featured books and journals (both print and electronic), databases, Videos (DVDs and streaming) and websites. They may also include specialized information specific to the topic (i.e. WHIMIS or resources specific to an assignment).

Do not hesitate to contact guide owners (information is on the guide) if you have any suggestions to improve this guide (content or special interest areas) or stop by the library – we would love to hear from you. If you would like to see a specific guide for a particular topic please let us know.

Your Guide is Ready

January 17, 2019

Staff at the Red River College Library have recently completed revision and makeover of our collection of guides. Now, with great pleasure, we would like to present our new and improved guides!

But, what are these guides, you might be wondering?

What are Guides?

Guides are like micro sites; web pages designed with a consistent layout displaying topical information about a specific subject. They are created by library staff to help students with their course work. Guides don’t necessarily give you the answers but point you in the right direction to the find the answers. Guides are meant to be supplementary information. They are a gathering of suggested resources such as books from the library’s collection, ebooks, media, websites, databases, and any other helpful information found along the way.

The Library has a variety of guides for different programs within the college such as culinary, nursing, library tech studies, marketing, and more. Guides will be updated and be created as needs arise, so check back regularly.

Locating our Guides

The “Guides” tab can be found at the top of the Red River College Library website home page.

You may also access the guides directly at: rrclibrary.libguides.com
