Learning at the Libraries: Information for Faculty

Information for Faculty and Instructors

Course Support from Librarians

The Libraries offers a wide range of support for student learning and research, including web-based resources, supplemental instruction from subject librarians, workshops, and reference services. Contact any of our subject librarians to learn about the resources and services available to your faculty and department. 


Supplemental Instruction

If you are teaching a course offered by the major faculties and colleges you can request to have a librarian visit your class and provide a basic orientation or instruction on the use of library resources. Instruction sessions may vary by subject, so it is best to discuss this with your librarian in advance. Sessions may include:

  • An introduction to library resources and services,
  • Information on subject specific collections and related technologies,
  • Instruction on search strategies, identifying and evaluating scholarly sources and other sources of information,
  • Instruction on citation styles and citation management tools,
  • Support for research assignments,
  • Discussion of information literacy, digital literacy, and academic integrity,
  • Information about other student support units such as the Academic Learning Centre and the Writing Tutors program.


Subject Guides

Librarians manage subject guides for each area of study at the University of Manitoba. Each guide has information about our discipline specific resources, including: print collections, databases, journals, research tools, and style guides. Students can also find information about their subject librarian and request a reference appointment.


Workshops & Orientations

Workshops are offered each semester on a range of topics through Grad Steps and the Libraries' Researcher Workshops series. Librarians also frequently participate in faculty and departmental orientations and have held open houses for graduate students at Elizabeth Dafoe Library and the Sciences & Technology Library. Contact your librarian for more information. 
 

UM Learn Integrations

You can easily add a librarian to your class enabling them to support your students within the UM Learn environment. Once added to your class a librarian can upload information about library collections and services, add course content, or participate in online class activities. Talk to your librarian to discuss ways they may be able to participate in your class online. 


Open Education Resources (OERs)

Are you interested in using open education resources in your course. OERs have many advantages, including reduced costs to students, the freedom to adapt content to your course, and added opportunities for student engagement and collaboration. For more information visit our OER Guide. Contact your subject librarian for help with locating open licensed materials. 

 

Add Library Modules To UM Learn

 

Learn at the Libraries is an introduction to research and writing at the undergraduate level. The website includes short modules covering topics related to academic writing, searching for scholarly sources, evaluating research material, and citation styles. The modules are interdisciplinary in nature to be able to supplement the diverse approaches to teaching and learning at University of Manitoba. It is a work in progress with additional content to be added in future stages of development.
