Library notice - Workshop update

We currently do not have any upcoming workshops planned, but we are happy to meet with you, individually or with your small-group, to tailor a session for your needs. Get in touch with the librarian for your program or research area.

Workshops, orientations and tours

Research is difficult, and finding the right information can be frustrating. The good news is that the Library can help make it easier. We offer a variety of programs, including general library orientation and workshops with an emphasis on improving your research skills. Invest a little time with us now and you can save time later on!

Orientation sessions

Top 5 things to know about the Library

In this short presentation, you will learn five things that will help you throughout your studies at uOttawa. This Fall, we have reshaped the way we offer certain services and access to spaces. A copy of our slides will be sent to you after the presentation. You'll also have a chance to win a $25 digital gift card! We look forward to seeing you!

Librarians are available to provide in-class instruction sessions for your students, tailored to your course and learning objectives. These may be presented live or recorded in advance for asynchronous delivery.

Topics vary by discipline and may include:

  • Developing a search strategy
  • Systematic reviews versus literature reviews
  • Key resources for your area of study

Please contact your Research Librarian to make arrangements.


We are not currently offering in-person Library tours. Online alternatives are being planned, please check back soon for more details.
