Assignment Help

The following resources are available to help you with assignments.

You can receive customized research help by booking an appointment with the Information Librarian. Schedule a one-on-one meeting or small group session for up to six people.

The Information Librarian can help you:

  • Find relevant print and electronic resources
  • Narrow your research topic
  • Use keyword and search strategies
  • Evaluate sources
  • Understand citation styles (APA, Chicago, MLA, or IEEE)

Sessions are typically available Monday to Friday, beginning at 8:30 a.m. The last appointment of the day begins at 4:00 p.m. Appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes in length. Please provide at least 24 hours advance notice when booking your session.

To schedule a session, please fill out the Book a Librarian request form. The Librarian will contact you to confirm your appointment.

Subject Guides

Our Subject Guides are a great starting point for beginning your research project. The subject guides provide useful resources in over twenty different subject areas. Each guide includes suggested resources on finding relevant sources or information for your research and how to use the right citation style for your discipline.

Library Instruction and Tours

Instructors can schedule a variety of library instructional sessions, including tours, for your students. We tailor the format and content of each session to the needs of the course and students. 

Library sessions can be booked year-round, including for evening and spring classes. Please provide two weeks' notice when requesting an instructional session. Tours require 24 hours' notice.

View the Library's instruction menu in the Faculty Library Guide for the list of sessions offered and for more information on booking a session. If you have any questions, email the Information Librarian.

Place Items on Reserve

Instructors can place items on reserve so they are easily accessible to students in their courses. To place an item on reserve, bring the material to the Library Information Desk and fill out a Reserve Form. Please allow two working days for reserve items to be available for borrowing.

Guidelines for Reserve Items

  • All items from the Library collection can be placed on reserve. Items in good condition that are the property to the instructor may also be placed in the reserve collection.
  • DVDs placed on reserve will only be available for viewing in the Library. Portable DVD players are available for borrowing to support viewing of DVDs.
  • The instructor must ensure that all photocopied material placed on reserve complies with Canadian copyright law.
  • The Library will supply folders or binders to hold photocopied material while on reserve.

Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources (OER) are freely accessible and reusable materials in any medium for teaching, learning or research. OERs use open copyright licenses like Creative Commons to enable a creator to determine the level of openness for their resource.

Types of OER materials include courses, textbooks, lesson plans, videos, and images. More information regarding OERs is available in the Open Educational Resources Subject Guide.

Community Library Services

The Keyano Library welcomes all community members to access its collection and services.

  • Computers are available for use with the provision of government issued photo ID. 
  • Online resources and databases are freely accessible on-campus. 
  • Print materials can be borrowed with a TAL Card. 
  • Keyano is a TAL Card issuing Library. Community members without a TAL Card can register for one at the Library's Information Desk.
