Who can register for SFU Library Research Commons workshops?


During COVID-19, Research Commons' services continue.

SFU graduate students are encouraged to book consultations with the Research Commons staff and partners. Consultations are available by phone, via email, or through online video-conference.

Not finding what you're looking for? Please get in touch with us at research-commons@sfu.ca so we can discuss your research support needs. 


Registration priority

Demand for Research Commons workshops is high, and we give priority to current SFU faculty, staff, and students.

However if spaces remain in the days leading up to the event, we can often permit those currently unaffiliated with SFU to attend.  

Wait list for researchers not currently affiliated with SFU

If you are not a current SFU faculty member, staff member, or student and would like to attend a Research Commons workshop, get in touch. We will add you to a wait list and contact you if a last-minute spot opens up. 

To be added to a wait list, please email rcommons@sfu.ca with the name of the workshop you are interested in, and your full name and contact email.


Note: this policy does not extend to workshops offered by the Student Learning Commons.
