The Learning Resource Centre collaborates with
Faculty to develop life-long learning skills throughout the Michener community.
"Book the Librarian" to set up a TLrC appointment to discuss all your information, teaching and learning support needs. The LRC can help you discover learning resources to share with your students, develop a hypothesis/research project for your Master's, conduct a systematic review, develop a search strategy, scan literature and more. Students can "Book the Librarian" too for research and referencing support.
The LRC has developed tailored Program Resource Guides for programs that give access to the best print and electronic resources and learning tools, such as an assignment calculator to plan projects working back from assignment due date, a research cycle tutorial to help students map out the research and submit quality papers, and a guide to writing critical reviews. These guides are constantly being updated with the newest and most relevant information sources.
The Resource Guides are available on the LRC website.
The Librarian can help meet your teaching goals and students' learning needs by:
