Workshops

Research Workshops

The Library’s Program Liaisons provide course and assignment-related instructional workshops for students at any campus. Our workshops address provincial Essential Employability Skills related to Information Management, and are always tailored to meet the needs of your students, from general introductions to more advanced skills.

Examples of workshop topics include:

  • An introduction to finding information using the Library
  • Advanced searching using the Library’s databases
  • How to do a literature review
  • Using Google effectively
  • Developing a research question
  • Evaluating information sources

Faculty may book a workshop by contacting their Program Liaison.

 

Academic Integrity & Copyright Workshops

Library staff also provide workshops designed to help students and faculty better understand issues related to academic integrity, including copyright. Workshops generally focus on one or more of the following:

  • What Academic Integrity means in Canadian educational settings
  • How to avoid plagiarism offenses by citing and referencing accurately
  • What copyright means according to Canadian law, and it's application in academic work (e.g. copying of images, videos, textbook content)

Faculty may book workshops by emailing Academic Integrity or Copyright as appropriate.

In order to plan an effective workshop, we require a minimum of one week’s notice, a meeting to discuss your needs and a copy of any related assignments.

Faculty should be in attendance for any Library workshop conducted for their class.
