Supporting Your Work

In-person library classes:

Helping students build excellent information skills is one important way we support student learning at NAIT. We teach face-to-face library sessions on a range of topics, and are happy to come into your class and work with your students.
We tailor our library sessions to the assignment your students are working on, and work with you to ensure that the content of our classes supports the learning objectives of your course.


Here are descriptions of the classes we commonly teach. If you'd like us to work with your class on a specific topic that you don't see listed, just get in touch - we're always open to something new.


Use our online booking form to book a session.

 

Online classes:

If you teach a distance class, or would like some extra, online content for your face-to-face classes, we have a series of self-paced, online library classes that students can work through to improve their information skills.

  • Program Resource Guides - Every program at NAIT has its own resource guide that will help students get started with their research.
