Research guides represent an important element of the web-based content services offered by academic libraries worldwide. They aim to support library users in getting familiar with professional literature and scientific information sources as well as in making successful searches. The author, working at Library of the Faculties of Law and Economics of the University of Pecs set up a research guide in the field of economics, adapting the service model to local conditions and needs. This paper presents the structure and the content of research guides, describes how such a service can be set up and gives an outline for further development.
