In addition to Library Services available to all patrons including students and employees, services available to Faculty include:
Online Tutorials - Alternatives to In-Class Sessions
We understand the value of your classroom time. Students develop research skills over time, so consider integrating relevant learning opportunities throughout your course or program. The library provides a variety of online resources and tutorials to supplement your course content. Videos, quizzes, handouts and guides on every step of the research process are available for you to share with your students.
SLC Library videos on Youtube provide an orientation or "tour of the library" and how to get started searching the college library. We encourage faculty to share these videos with all students.
Library Workshops and In-Class Orientation Sessions
Library workshops support teaching and learning by providing students with the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the resources available at SLC, learn about the research process, and develop research and information literacy skills. For writing and citing workshops, contact the Academic Support Centres.

If you are pursuing an advanced degree at another institution, we recommend that you seek help first from your institution’s library services, as their collections will be designed to support your program.
Faculty are encouraged to use online library resources and open educational resources in the delivery of online instruction. Many resources, including tutorials and how-to-guides, to help support students' research and study needs are available in the Faculty Information Literacy Toolkit.
