Services and Sessions

The following sessions can be offered. Please read through and determine which session type would be most suitable for your group.

General Library Orientation

An introduction to the library and its services, including student academic support.. A fifteen minute walking tour of the Murray Library and a half hour breakdown and introduction to the library website.

This session is focused on creating familiarity with the library. Our hope is to build personal connections with your students so that they become help-seekers, allowing them to take advantage of our point-of-need, and one-to-one services.

During the first two weeks of every term, there are regular tours that cover the same content. If these offerings coincide with your class time, simply let us know which date and the number of attendees by email (tours@library.usask.ca).
