Link to or embed the Library Research Tutorial or custom research guide

You can always request that a librarian provide a research workshop for your class in person or in Zoom, but you can also embed our online Library Research Tutorial or request a custom made research guide to be embedded into your course.

The Library Research Tutorial is a series of videos and activities that will guide students through the research process from initial planning to evaluating and citing sources. 

We recommend that you assign specific activities to assess student understanding and encourage a strategic and critical approach to searching for and assessing resources.

Your liaison librarian can create a custom made research guide for your course that includes direct links to readings, and additional resources that will help them with their assignments. See examples of our research guides: 

To embed the guide directly into your course:

  1. Click Add resource
  2. Select External tool
  3. Enter the activity name: for example Course Library Resources or Library Research Tutorial
  4. Enter the LibGuide URL ( or we can send you the link to your custom course guide.       604-844-3840        520 East 1st Avenue, Vancouver, BC
