SFU Library buildings now closed, services available online.

We are updating our Summer semester library instruction, workshop, and consultation calendars to reflect remote and online offerings. For details, see Workshops and classes: Library, Student Learning Commons, Research Commons, and pages for specific Library services.   

To request library research instruction for your class, contact lib-learn@sfu.ca to discuss how we can help you.


The SFU Library is pleased to offer support to Fraser International College instructors by offering instruction in library research. Students will be introduced to the services and collections of an academic library, and will develop information literacy skills that can be applied in the FIC program and throughout their academic careers.

Instruction is offered through the following options:

Point of need instruction

General reference assistance is available to FIC students through our Ask A Librarian services, by email and through the AskAway chat reference service. 

Self-directed instruction

FIC students may also use the Library’s online tutorials at any time to learn skills like how to use the Library catalogue, and understanding the differences between popular and scholarly sources.

Customised library research instruction 

As FIC instructors and faculty, you are welcome to request workshops tailored to a specific assignment. Please contact us with the details of your request and a staff member from the Library or SLC will be in touch with you to confirm details.

For writing workshops, please contact learning-commons@sfu.ca  

Other customised instruction options

In addition to in-person teaching, the Library can provide other instruction options such as:

  • Online research guides tailored to a course assignment
  • Online tutorials and quizzes

Instructors are invited to contact the Library at  lib-learn@sfu.ca  to discuss the best approach for their classes.
