Instructional support


Concordia University's subject and teaching librarians are ready to work with you to support students in their discovery, strategic searching, evaluation, and use of information relevant to their academic disciplines, research questions, professional trajectories, and beyond.

Contact your subject librarian

Please contact your librarian in advance of your course; a minimum of two weeks before the requested library instruction date may be required in order to meet the needs of your students.

Taking a moment for communication with your librarian, whether virtually or in person, can enhance faculty-librarian collaborations for the benefit of your students.

Your syllabus and major assignments which are likely to indicate the information needs and expectations that you have of your students are useful documents for faculty-library collaboration. Please consider sharing these teaching materials.

Subject librarian contact information

Workshops and assignments

Subject librarians provide workshops and assignments that are specifically tailored to the needs of individual Concordia faculty and their courses. Workshops can include hands-on instruction in the use of print and electronic resources in a specific discipline. Assignments can include activities to reinforce library research concepts taught in workshops. To arrange for a workshop and/or assignment, contact your subject librarian.
