New online library guides are currently being created by MDC faculty librarians to organize information and resources for students. These guides cover subjects that complement MDC classes and make accessing subject specific information easier than ever.

If you would like to recommend a subject for a new guide or have a great resource to be considered for inclusion in a guide, feel free to leave a comment to this post.
