General classes

Encourage your students to take advantage of the free drop-in general information literacy and library research skills workshops offered for researchers of all levels at the beginning of each semester.

Tailored instruction

Contact your Librarian if you would like your students to benefit from an in-person or online library research class, web guide or online tutorial. In these course and assignment oriented presentations, librarians teach students to analyze their topics, develop effective search strategies and identify the best information resources. Each year, SFU faculty invite librarians to more than 400 classes reaching over 10,000 students. Liaison librarians also welcome the opportunity to work with faculty to help design assignments with a library research focus or component.

Introduction to NVivo for Mac (in Mac Lab)

NVivo is a qualitative data analysis software program, but what does that mean -- and what does it mean for your research? Find out what NVivo is, when to use it, and how to get started.

In this hands-on introductory workshop, you'll take a tour of the NVivo software environment, using sample data. You’ll be introduced to NVivo’s functions and you’ll leave equipped with the basic info you need to begin working with NVivo. Topics introduced may include importing files and beginning coding.

This workshop is suitable for those with little or no experience using NVivo or other qualitative data analysis software.

1. This workshop is for NVivo for Mac. The Windows interface is significantly different. Please check here for NVivo for Windows workshops being offered.
2. This workshop takes place in a Mac lab, so you don't need to bring your own laptop. However, if you wish to use your Mac laptop, please make sure you preload it  with the latest version of NVivo. You can download NVivo and the license key with your SFU computing ID by using the self-serve download link here. If you are unable to get past the authentication page, then please email
