Research Guides in Blackboard: Home

The Research Guides feature in Blackboard allows you to embed content from the George Brown College Library’s Research Guides into your Blackboard course. Students can then easily access this content from within their course on Blackboard.

Research guides contain subject- and program-specific content such as links to specialized databases and journals. The guides are created by librarians in order to assist students and faculty in their resource selection. If you have questions or concerns about the content of a guide, please contact your liaison librarian.
