    What are Research Guides?

    LSCC Libraries research guides, or LibGuides, are one-stop shops for library resources organized by subject, course, or general topic. These guides contain information, resources, and links relevant to research for a specific assignment or topic. Your Library Liaison creates and curates each guide and provides the expertise to identify the best resources for your course’s research needs.
