What Librarians Can Do For You

Librarians are skilled and trained research professionals, instructors and information experts who:

  • Assist faculty in the creation of relevant class assignments
  • Actively participate in faculty research teams and perform extensive literature searches
  • Provide in-class library instruction and information literacy training
  • Provide research consultations
  • Create and maintain collections, and purchase materials to support current courses and ongoing research
  • Ensure accurate and efficient retrieval of resources by users
  • Produce online research guides and library instruction tutorials


LibGuides is a collection of Subject Guides created by UNBC Librarians. The guides will help you find books, articles and relevant websites to get you started in your research.

Contact a librarian to arrange instruction and research consultations, and to make material requests and suggestions.
