Subject Guides and Course Guides are two different types of LibGuides. 

Subject Guides serve as a resource center for recommended resources for a major subject.  These guides allow a student to click on his/her major and see the most recommended resources for that major. These are broader in focus and organized by material type (books, articles, websites, etc).

Sample Subject Guides:  Education, Forensic Science, Business Administration

Course Guides are created for a specific course or assignment. These guides are most often created at the request of a professor. They are very focused, pulling together resources and directions to support students in a very relevant way.  

Sample Course Guides:  PY110, BA520, AH120, MK340
