The Weinberg Memorial Library is proud to announce a new collaborative project this fall – the University of Scranton Library Research Guides!
The Research Guides basically act as a starting point, where students and other researchers can find useful resources in their discipline. We’re using the Guides as a “home” to bring together helpful databases, reference books, e-books, and web resources for each subject. While we’re focusing on traditional academic disciplines, we’re also creating Research Guides for interdisciplinary issues like Sustainability and New Technology.
The best thing about the Research Guides, though, is that they’re in wiki format (like Wikipedia) – which means that anyone can contribute links or references they find useful in their work. It also means that the Research Guides are fluid. Unlike static web pages, they will change and adapt over time as contributors add, update, and reorganize resources.
We’d like to invite all members of the University of Scranton community to view, edit, and improve our Research Guides. If you’re new to wiki editing, take a minute to visit our Getting Started page. Let us know if you have questions, comments, or suggestions. We’re looking forward to collaborating with you!
