What are subject guides?

SCPL Subject Guides

Subject Guides are a great resource for anybody interested in researching (or simply learning more about) a particular topic. They lead you through the research process by providing step-by-step instructions and by pointing you to a wide variety of sources that you might not find on your own. These might include books, websites, online databases, local documents, phone numbers, and more &mdash all gathered in one convenient location.
