Librarians and archivists are committed to the University of Regina’s teaching mission. At the request of faculty members, we offer instruction to support students from first-year to graduate level, including finding, evaluating, and using information resources. A variety of settings, including classrooms, computer labs, and online, are available. Additional instruction and support is available from our Research Guides, online tutorials, and through our participation in URCourses (at the request of the instructor). We also provide regular training sessions and workshops independent of courses.
Please contact your Subject Librarian to request instruction.
