Scholarly Collaboration

National and international research collaborations are becoming increasingly common. This section of the guide introduces tools to facilitate collaboration with other researchers. There are workshops available on many of these topics, or you can contact your liaison librarian to discuss training opportunities. If you are on Bannatyne Campus or in one of the hospitals, you can also book a House Call to have a librarian come to your office, lab, or meeting to deliver a training session.


Networking tools allow you to identify potential research collaborators.
