St. Lawrence College Libraries

Brockville, Cornwall, Kingston

Welcome New & Returning Students!

The Library Team is here to help you!

Using a library can be intimidating for anyone, but we're here to guide you. If you're feeling overwhelmed with the research process, picking a topic, or trying to find articles, you are not alone. It's important to know that research is a challenge, and struggling with your search is very normal - the process is much different from a quick Google search to find a fact. 

Remote Library Assistance Opening Hours

Monday - Friday, 8:30am - 4:00pm

  • Online Chat/IM: no login required, just connect using the library website. Chat allows link-sharing. This is a great option to test out the library as the service is anonymous. 
  • Texting Service  (613-707-3542 or 613-707-3LIB): this service is best for quick questions.
  • e-Appointments using Teams: SLC students may request a library research appointment with a Library Technician. Teams allows video, chat, and screen-sharing and is best for help with research-based class assignments. These appointments are intended to be friendly and informal at any point in the research process. Don't be shy; we're so excited to meet with you and hear about your topic!

How to get started

How do I use Library Databases?

The SLC Libraries provides off-campus access to more than 100 vendor-provided and open-access databases. A database is a general or subject-specific collection of information sources, most often containing scholarly or peer-reviewed research articles. Click on the Video Tutorials tab at the top of this page to find easy to understand video tutorials on searching our most popular databases. Most of our subject-specific databases are from the vendor Ebsco, so the Ebsco search tutorial is a great start for learning search strategies to apply to many research databases. For additional assistance, please contact the library using email, text, and chat.
