Our librarian written Research Guides are a pretty good deal we think! Why? Well, they play multiple roles for one thing - they're great for specific class assignments, they help people in general find information on various subjects, and they also help us help you. Hey, even we can't remember where all these databases and things are sometimes!
Like anything, some get used more than others, but many receive quite a lot of use. For example, our research guide to anthropology was used 1124 times this spring semester, and the guide to the Big Read project was used 1793 times.
