Your library liaison can help you curate a course-specific reading list featuring open and library subscription materials. Our Library Guides provide a quick and easy platform to create useable lists for you and your students. Library Guides can stand alone, links can be provided directly in ppt slides and websites, and library guides can also be linked to or embedded into Folio Courses. Contact your Library Liaison to get started creating a customized list for your courses.
