We're continuing our Tutorial Series this winter and offer you tools to make your research easier, your searching more relevant and more efficient. We offer a variety - some geared to Faculty, graduate students and undergraduates, but anyone is welcome to attend any or all of the sessions offered.
- FRI JAN 11: Tools for Graduate Students
11am-noon Library Instruction Room
Make your research more effective. This session provides you with an overview of the library’s resources and services available to you as a graduate student. It includes searching for books, browsing e-journals, selecting and using subject-specific and multidisciplinary databases, accessing articles using Get It@ Laurier and discovering who your liaison librarian is and how s/he can help you with your research. We’ll also field any library related questions you might have.
