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!

Webinar series - Open Access to Knowledge

Since the beginning of the pandemic, several Canadian funding agencies have committed to ensuring research findings and data relevant to the COVID-19 outbreak are shared rapidly and openly to inform the public health response and help save lives. In aid of this commitment, the Library has created a guide “COVID-19 Rapid Response Data Sharing and Deposit Support" and is offering a two-part webinar series to help researchers, whether they have received COVID-related funding or otherwise, understand how and where to make their peer-reviewed research publications or preprints available in open access and how to make the underlying data clearly and widely available.

Note that the series is offered multiple times in both English and French. Visit the French version of this page to sign up for the French sessions. The webinars will be recorded and posted to the Library’s YouTube channel.

Part 1: Sharing Your Research Publication and Part 2: Sharing your Research Data!
