This guide will help faculty with linking library content into their Canvas courses.

Research Guides

What are research guides?

Research guides are created by librarians and contain information on topics or subjects to help students with learning how to conduct research. Moorpark College Library Research Guides are useful to students because they provide in-depth information and step-by-step instructions or tutorials. Guides can have articles from the web or from an academic database in our collection, library catalog links, video and photo resources, and citation help. They can also include book recommendations, study games, and more.
