Chapter 8: Developing and incorporating impactful library research guides for online and hybrid learners
Restricted access

As documented by research, students enrolled in online and hybrid classes tend to be at a relatively high risk of missing out on library resources and services that can help them conduct first-rate research. To address this less-than-optimal situation, librarians, often aided by faculty, develop student-centered online library research guides offering curated collections of high-quality, easily accessible library resources and services. This chapter outlines strategies educators can use to enhance the impact of these library research guides for the purposes of inclusive, accessible online learning and research. It focuses on the importance of faculty actively contributing to the creation and dissemination of library research guides, and provides best practices and related checklists to follow when aiming at student-oriented effective and accessible guide design. Options for library guide incorporation in Learning Management Systems as well as in related course e-materials are also discussed.
