Library Orientations
Interested in learning more about all the services and resources the South College Library provides to support your education?  The library offers an online Library Orientation Course for each campus and program that will walk you through everything you need to know to get started with the library.  You can choose a different version for each city as well as the online campus, so you can take the orientation designed for your location.  You can also book an appointment with one of your program’s librarians for a one-on-one orientation, in person or via Zoom.

Getting Help with Your Research
Library staff are here to help you with resources and research for your projects.  We can recommend specific resources, help you with search terms, help you cite your sources, and show you where to locate full text. You can also use the library’s Doing Research Guide  to help you get started.  Make an appointment with your Program Librarian, email or contact the librarians on duty through the Ask a Librarian chat.
