🧔 Meet your librarian
Have you met your librarian yet?
Your librarian is a specialist in offering you personalized research and citation support. Each school at SAIT has its own librarian with subject-specific expertise. Schedule an appointment to Meet Your Librarian in person or online for help with your assignments and projects.
💻 Online research tutorials
If you haven’t had a chance to meet your librarian or do an in-class library research session, check out our online research tutorial. A series of short videos and worksheets help guide you through the research process. These tutorials are also great as a refresher and will help you to:
- Develop an effective research strategy.
- Find a variety of information sources in the library.
- Evaluate information using RADAR.
- Locate information required to cite a source.
