The OISE librarians are experienced in providing support for your teaching goals. We are happy to meet with you to design one or more in-person or online library workshops to support the specific research needs of your students. We offer a range of synchronous and asynchronous instruction to support students in the critical information literacy skills they'll need to be successful in your course and in their programs.
To request a customized online or in-person session for your course, please contact Emily Hector. Some common library session topics include:
- Searching the library’s print and online resources strategically and efficiently
- Developing comprehensive, critical literature search skills
- Using RefWorks or Zotero to manage citations and create bibliographies
We have also developed a suite of asynchronous information literacy supports for your students, including:
- Self-paced library research modules customized by OISE department
- Education-focused research guides
- A selection of short video tutorials
The OISE Library can help compile your course materials by:
- Making course readings available on course reserve at the OISE Library and/or in your Quercus or Pepper course shell
- Checking your syllabus for copyright compliance
- Reserving a film for your class
