March 18, 2020 update: While the physical SFU Libraries are temporarily closed due to COVID-19 measures, I'm happy to continue to support you in your research and respond to your collections questions remotely. Please feel free to contact me via email during this time (firstname.lastname@example.org). You may also leave a voicemail on my office phone in Burnaby but the Vancouver number does not take messages.
Please note that our virtual reference service AskAway remains open, continuing with our usual extended evening and weekend hours.
If you are contacting me about a research question, it is always helpful to have some background information, such as:
- specific course or program (if applicable),
- research/assignment deadlines,
- what sources you have searched so far (for example: Google Scholar, the library catalogue, specific databases/websites, nothing yet, etc..),
- what kind of information you are hoping to find
The guides below will provide links to important sources and some search tips to get you started:
