What is a Research Guide?

Research Guides are collections of resources and databases created by librarians and staff at the McGraw-Page Library to help you find the best, relevant information for your research. “Subject Guides” bring together the best resources for specific disciplines. “General Guides” bring together information and resources on various general topics relevant to both research and academic life at Randolph-Macon.

Subject librarians specialize in helping with research in specific areas of study, so if you have questions or need help with research don't hesitate to reach out to your subject librarian!
