On-line Research Help Guide Modification: Project Statement

This new version of the On-line Research Help Guide was a technical writing class project at Longwood University during the 2011 spring semester.  A group of 19 students and 1 professor, Dr. Heather Lettner-Rust, worked together for over 2 months, meeting with librarians and audience samples, to gather information on what tools are the most useful to students and how to effectively deliver these tools to them.  The vision modifying this Library Guide was to provide a central search point, with easy access and friendly user-interface, for Longwood students in need of research assistance.
