Students at desk

As the fall term nears, UBC faculty are invited to innovate with the Faculty Information Literacy Toolkit.

In partnership with UBC librarians, faculty members and students, the toolkit was developed to support the creation of research assignments and instruction that address students’ information literacy levels and needs.

The toolkit provides faculty with:

• Tips for developing a research assignment that addresses five key information literacy skills;

• Resources and tools from UBC Library and other institutions that assist in developing student research skills;

• An information literacy assignment checklist that offers a way to assess one’s own assignments;

• Examples of assignments that focus on the information literacy skills of emerging academic researchers; and

• Additional resources and materials.


For more information, please contact Erin Fields, UBC Library’s Teaching and Learning Librarian.

As a companion to the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation (McGill Guide) which is only available in print at UBC Library, we have created an online Legal Citation Guide.  There is a link to this guide from the Law Library homepage, directly under the heading “Research Resources.”

The McGill Guide focuses on the citation rules for materials commonly referred to in legal writing – legislation, case law, books and journal articles.  To meet the needs of students and faculty who must cite to a broader range of resources, we have acquired The Chicago Manual of Style Online.  It is now available campus-wide from this resource page.
