Subject Guides

Subject Guides support library users at all times and from any location by collecting valuable library information into an online portal for independent learning. 

Targeted at subject areas, specific courses, or general research skills, each guide contains links to a wide variety of both library and outside resources that can help users accomplish their research and education goals.

We are constantly expanding our collection of guides and adding content. For a complete list of HSL Subject Guides, visit our LibGuides Home.
