Welcome

The purpose of this guide is to recommend print and electronic resources for conducting research in Environmental Studies at Laurentian University. Click on the links on the left to see a variety of research resources that are available.

I am available to assist you in your research throughout the academic year.  Please e-mail me to set up a date and time.

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.

We can hold 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.
