Subject Guides: step by step guide to completing your research project – fast!
Team Northeastern knows that Subject Guides are the best place for students to start their research but heard too many students say that they did know that the Subject Guides exist. Northeastern has librarians who are subject experts, and students do not know that those Librarians anticipate their needs and curate Subject Guides specific to each topic.
"Students already know and love library as the heart of campus and a place to get work done. What they aren’t familiar with is all of the subjects have a curated resource." Jon Reed - Team Northeastern

The subject guide promotion is going strong. Subject guides are one of the first things that our staff members mention about the library when doing outreach.
Keep on evangelizing subject guides!
It was a lot harder to track metrics than initially thought and there were some design issues (aesthetics) of the subject guide postcards.
