Self-Paced Library Tutorials
While we are all (mostly) at a distance, you might feel a bit lost when it comes to accessing library resources - things like journal articles, databases, books. Where to go? You can always contact your librarian, Virginia Wilson. Plus, you can check out these self-paced library tutorials!
Three tutorials on looking carefully at a research question or topic, creating a search strategy, and searching for scholarly articles in library databases. Each tutorial has a quiz so you can test your learning. There are no marks involved and no one else will see your answers. The quizzes are for you to gauge your own understanding. Following the tutorials on the main menu are pages for suggested databases, how to find articles and other resources, and other support.
This guide will help you locate USask library services and other resources that are available in the event that USask is experiencing brief or prolonged closure.
