Q. Is libguides a database?


No. LibGuides are subject-specific guides to resources. They are like mini-websites where everything is devoted to one topic. 

They are intened to help you jump-start your research by putting a sample of our best resources (including databases, journals, books, ebooks, websites, and more) on a particular topic in one place for you to find easily.

Check out the video below for more information on LibGuides or contact a librarian for help.
