This research guide has been prepared in consultation with Dr. Alicia Hawkins of the Archaeology program.

Archaeology Program

For information about Laurentian's Archaeology program, please visit the program's web site.


The purpose of this guide is to recommend print and electronic resources for conducting research in archaeology in the Library.  Click on thelinks on the left for suggestions about starting your research, getting books and articles, and finding other useful tools for research in archaeology.

Connect from Off Campus

Most of the Library's online resources are available to you from anywhere off campus.  See: UL Proxy Accounts.

Library Instruction

To learn more about the library and its resources and how you can exploit them to your advantage, register in the Research Skills Tutorial on D2L. There are several sections in the tutorial with a short quiz at the end of each; at the end you will receive a Certificate of Completion. Many professors require you to take this tutorial--and once you finish it, you can save your certificate to reprint as often as necessary.

In the fall,  the library hosts live Orientation tours as well as Zotero classes which you can sign up for at the library's entrance, and even after the formal schedule is finished, we are very happy to put on special classes at the request of at least 5 students. If you would like to arrange a special class, or you think your course would benefit from some in-class library instruction, please ask your professor to contact the librarian responsible for your faculty to set up some sessions.
