Orientation Toolbox

Primo Search

Primo Search is a single search tool to find your reserve readings, books, ebooks, articles, journals, videos and more. Watch the above video to learn more about using Primo.


Online Library Workshops (OLWs) are offered at various times throughout the year. The OLWs are conducted online in real-time, and you can attend from the comfort of your home or favourite study space. For more information and registration details, head to the Library's OLW page.

Library Resource Guides

Library Resources Guides are a great way to get started with research. Each online guide is tailored to a specific area of study, outlining how to research in your area and where to look for information. It's best to bookmark the guide(s) useful for your course and to come back to them as needed.
