This tool automatically provides a library guide relevant to your course code. For example, an ACCT 1010 course will be directed to the Accounting guide with subject-specific resources for articles, books, journals, and media. No linking or selecting content is required by the instructor. The tool can be placed inside a content module, or on the D2L course navbar.
