Guides

We have an extensive collection of Library Guides for students and faculty.  These can be found on our Guides page.

Library staff create guides where a need is evident.  We will collaborate with faculty on the creation of new guides also.  If your students will benefit from the creation of a subject specific guide, please reach out to your Collection Development contact to begin the conversation.  You may also email us at Library@rrc.ca.

Inter-Library Loan

Inter-Library Loan is an arrangement between libraries to share resources to users at another library. We will try to borrow material that we do not have in our library from another library that does.  This could include books, articles and more.  Please see our Inter-Library Loan (ILL) page for full information and the ILL request form.

Library Instruction

Information & Program Delivery staff will instruct your students in research tools and methods for their assignments.

Live Sessions

Through live sessions we can demonstrate our OneSearch database, subject specific databases, APA basics, research basics, and more. Live sessions are delivered in WebEx, Teams, and in-person when permitted.  We can also record specialized library research sessions for use in LEARN. 

For more information please visit Reference Services and Library Instruction page in Faculty Support.
