Liaison Librarians

Librarians collaborate with faculty to develop the academic research skills and confidence our students need to successfully navigate the increasingly complex world of information. Together we have successfully integrated information literacy objectives into the curricula of many departments and faculties.

Contact your liaison librarian to arrange information literacy instruction for your class. Workshops and lectures can range broadly. We offer diverse sessions from general overviews, to workshops designed to encourage students to think critically about information, to sessions focused on developing expertise with particular databases or research indices. In some instances, librarians work with instructors over a series of classes and are involved in the development of assigned work. Librarians may consult with instructors in the development of courses and assignments even in instances where library instruction is not incorporated directly into class time.

Liaison librarians acquire material in print and online to meet the research needs of faculty and students in each discipline.

Liaison librarians also serve as a familiar first point-of-contact, when faculty and students do not know whom to contact with a question or concern about the library.

Faculty and students can book a Library Research Consultation with a liaison librarian.

Please let your liaison librarian know of any suggestions for the collection, or

Past Exams

In accordance with a Senate Regulation Lakehead University Library provides the past three years of examinations. Past exams are available for viewing in PDF format via myCourseLink. Once logged in, look for the "Past Exams" course in the "Select a course..." drop down menu.

All exams are added shortly after completion unless the instructor has followed the procedures to request an exemption. On the Thunder Bay campus the Library obtains copies of exams from the print shop. On the Orillia campus copies are provided directly to the Library.

If you can't see past exams in MyCourseLink, self-register by selecting "What to Do if You Cannot Find a Course" in the myCourseLink welcome screen after logging in. Then, scroll down to the "Self-Registering for NON-Academic courses" section and follow the Self-Registration link.
