Q. What is the difference between a subject guide and a course guide?
Subject Guides and Course Guides are just two different types of Research Guides.
Subject Guides serve as a resource center for recommended resources for a major. 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).
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.
