Support from your Subject Librarian
The subject librarian for your department offers subject-specific advice to help you find, evaluate and manage the most relevant research information for your program. They can also advise on referencing your work correctly.
Each librarian has created an online research guide to help you to find resources for your class assignments. If you can't find what you need via your research guide, you can contact your subject librarian and make an appointment to see them.
Subject-specific or course-specific workshops also take place throughout the academic year. Contact your subject librarian for more information or to request a workshop for your class.
