Library Resources to Start Your Semester Strong
As the fall semester commences, we think it’s important to share some resources that can support you this semester. Many of our services and resources are available online, so you can access them whenever you need them, from wherever you are.
Online appointments and consultations
You can meet with a staff member or peer consultant on a variety of topics. At your appointment, you'll receive individual, personalized support for your needs. All our appointments are free and confidential.
When you book an appointment, we will:
- Provide feedback on your writing in all stages of the writing process
- Learn strategies for organizing your ideas and structuring your thesis, papers, and chapters
- Support you in working with data, such as finding the datasets you need for your assignments, research projects, thesis, or dissertation
- Assist you in controlling procrastination and perfectionism to complete your assignments, thesis, or program on time
These are just some examples of topics we can help with.
Visit our appointment booking page to learn more about each appointment type and book an appointment today.
This semester all workshops are being held online to support you in developing your academic and professional skills.
Planning for Success – library workshops in collaboration with Gryphons Nest
This semester, we're offering new set of workshops to support U of G students with the transition remote learning. The Planning for Success series will cover topics like learning remotely, maximizing your productivity, and preparing for midterms.
Browse our full workshops calendar to find a workshop that’s right for you and to register.
Supported Learning Groups
Supported Learning Groups (SLGs) have also moved online and are being offered through CourseLink Virtual Classroom. SLGs provide course specific support for student outside of class. These free, peer-led sessions and study groups are designed to help student succeed in historically challenging courses by reviewing course material, discussing new approaches to difficult concepts and connecting you to others in your classes. Watch this video on Supported Learning Groups.
Library guides are custom online guides designed to support you in your academic journey at U of G. Each guide covers a specific topic, such as writing a lab report, citing your sources, or studying effectively, and include relevant resources about the topic. Guides may also direct you to helpful videos, worksheets, or databases that are relevant to the work you’re doing.
Our physical space
We’ve begun the phased reopening of some library services for the fall. However, we ask that you only come to campus if needed and follow guidelines that are in place at U of G. To learn more about how the library can support you online and in-person this fall, visit our reopening page.
