Library Resources in Brightspace: Subject Guides

Adding Subject Guides

NSCC Library Services uses LibGuides' Content Management System to create and maintain Subject Guides. There is a guide for every Learning Program. NSCC Librarians work with faculty to pull together lists of books, eBooks, articles, websites, and videos that are current, authoritative and accessible from on and off-site campus.

Subject Guides integrate seamlessly into Brightspace courses. You can add:

  • an entire guide
  • a page from a guide
  • a box from a guide
