Use of LibGuides @ NJIT
For easy access to NJIT content, we have elected to provide browse access to four categories of guides: course guides, general research guides, subject guides and subject librarian liaison guides.
- Course Guides - developed, prepared and tailored for a specifc class and/or particular course by our subject liaison librarians. Examples - ET101, FED 101, IE 335, HUM101, HUM102, ME408, etc...
- General Research Guides - developed and prepared for basic general instruction to navigate library resources. Example - ebooks, EndNote, general library databases, self-learning tutorials, etc...
- Subject Guides - developed and prepared for learning about library resources for specific subjects. Example - biomedical engineering, physics, civil and environmental engineering, etc...
- Subject Librarian Liaison Guides - developed and prepared to provide information about NJIT's librarian liaison program which began in 1992 and has proven to be very effective in developing "librarian-faculty-student" relationships.
