Tailored information skills classes for students

After orientation, what’s next?

We offer course-related instruction to students at all levels, from first-year programmes to classes engaged in capstone projects as well as postgraduate courses.

Partnering with teaching faculty and instructors, Faculty Librarians design training content and materials to help develop information literacy skills of our students so as to improve the quality of student research.

Contact your Faculty Librarian for details here.
