Instruction services for Fraser International College (FIC)

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.
