Distance Education recently collaborated with the Library to build a course widget that connects students with relevant research material using the Library’s curated Subject Guides. The widget will display the name of the course (e.g. Intro to Business) and link directly to the corresponding subject guide, helping students find relevant material in the PCC collection. Check out the official Library news release for more details.
