This Guide is a repository to a diverse sampling of Education Research Guides for librarians that have a liaison area in Education. It is designed to provide inspiration and ideas for your own guides.

It is organized and maintained by the ACRL EBSS Education Committee. For more information and contact info, see the Contact us box below. 

Reuse a lot of these Guides! (After seeking permission)

If you see this Reuse icon - Reuse - then that means that the Library Guide is available in Springshare's Community Guides and you can reproduce and adapt this guide to suit your context. 

As a courtesy, seek permission from the guide creator before reusing their guide. 

To reuse a Library Guide:

  1. In LibGuides Home, select Create Guide.
  2. For Choose Layout or Reuse, select Copy content/layout from an existing guide.
  3. Select the Community Guides radio button.
  4. Search for the guide you wish to reuse by Guide URL (easiest, as many guides have the same title), e.g. If you cannot find it by URL, search for it by title.
  5. Populate desired fields and select Create Guide.

Springshare copies the entire guide into your system except for database assets. Replace any applicable database assets with your institution's.

If you intend to keep the creator's written content or designs, attribute the library. Some library guides may be licensed under a Creative Commons license (we have noted in the description if any are), so for those cases, follow the attribution guidelines.

Criteria for Selection
