Library Skills Support for Students

There are many supports we offer to help students succeed in their coursework. Please consider promoting these to your students:

Online Tutorials

Video and text based tutorials for students on library and research skills.  These tools can be embedded in D2L, linked from a PowerPoint, or assigned to students as homework or review. As always, we welcome your suggestions and feedback!

Subject Guides

Subject Guides group all kinds of resources together by program of study. We hope you will consider linking them from the Resources section of your D2L course-page. Please contact your Program Liaison if you have suggestions or requests for customized content.

Library Workshops 

Voluntary workshops that help students build a foundation of Information Literacy skills as they relate to the academic and professional world.

Library Modules in D2L
