New: Library Research Guides!

The library has a newly designed Library Tab in myRedDragon featuring the new Library Research Guides! Our previous Subject Plus guides have been transitioned to the most widely used system for creating research guides and sharing knowledge: LibGuides. These online Library Research Guides cover all SUNY Cortland’s study areas, specific topics and general research techniques and are created by Cortland librarians to help faculty and students find information for a particular subject.  Be sure to take a look at our new Library Research Guides. You can find them in the third box down in the middle of the Library Tab. Enjoy!
