4.3. Subject Guides

Note! To improve these resources and keep them up-to-date–we need your help! Please contact us if you see any problems such as defunct organizations or broken links, and also let us know if you’ve found something great to add. And, if you have recommendations for new Subject Guides, also let us know! libpress@bc.libraries.coop

Shared / Centralized Content is perfect for Subject Guides, so that all LibPress sites can access great curated lists of information. The following guides are generally available in both BC and MB versions (indicated in the Shared Text Preview dropdown appended with -BC or -MB)
