This is Your Library: Learning Services

Learning effectively is an essential part of university. With content being presented in a variety of formats, it’s important to develop learning techniques, skills, and strategies that work for you. The library has an array of resources and services designed for everyone at U of G. From navigating procrastination and perfectionism, to learning in large lectures, we can assist you. After all, this is your library.  

In this article we’ll introduce you to several learning resources and services offered here at the library and how you can access them.

In-Person Learning Appointments

At the library, we offer in-person learning appointments that are designed to help you develop the skills and strategies you need to succeed academically while at university. Here, you’ll meet with one of our staff members for advice on how to study more effectively—for free!

We can support you in the transition from high school to university-level learning, guide you in how to study for different types of exams, and so much more! We also have in-person appointments for enhancing your presentation skills, where you can learn strategies for managing nervousness, as well as tips on designing academic posters. This is also an opportunity to practice your presentation and receive feedback from our professional staff.

Check out our appointment booking page and see what other kinds of appointments you can book for free!

Online Learning Consultations—NEW THIS YEAR!

Learning consultations are now available online, too! With this addition, you can receive the same services that you would in a traditional appointment, but online. This brand-new service is being implemented to better meet students' needs!

Don’t want to meet, but still want assistance?

No problem! The library has plenty of online services and resources you can access straight from the comfort of your home or dorm room. From the library’s website, you can find online tools and videos on topics like effective studying, group work, mark calculation and more! Another thing we highly recommend is bookmarking your very own Course Guides—these guides have been specially curated for all undergraduate courses by library staff and include helpful resources that are tailored to your course content. Find your guide today!

Over the coming weeks we’ll be deep diving into several areas of the Learning Commons—your one stop shop for academic support on campus! Next up? Writing Services.
