Subject Guides

What are subject guides?

The amount of materials available at the StFX Library can seem a bit overwhelming. Luckily, the Librarians at StFX have constructed subject guides to make it easier for students to do their research. A subject guide is a central hub for reliable and relevant scholarly resources available at the Library.

Students may use the subject guide as a roadmap to help locate materials that they can use in their essays and assignments. The contents of a subject guide can vary, but they usually contain lists of suggested books, key journals and databases, video tutorials, and other useful links that pertain to the guide’s topic.
