U of G Library Services
Throughout your time at Guelph, you'll find yourself in the library in between classes, making a pit-stop for coffee, meeting friends to study or peers to work on a project, signing out a book, printing your assignment, or taking advantage of their many services.
1. The Learning Commons is here for you
From providing support to improve your writing skills and prepare for exams, to helping you fine-tune your research abilities, the Learning Commons in McLaughlin Library has got your back! In addition to these, they’ll assist you with:
- Data analysis
- Conducting a survey
Think of it as a one-stop shop designed to help you succeed academically.
2. The IT Help Desk solves your tech problems.
Located in the centre of the first floor of the library, the IT help desk is staffed with Computing & Communications Service Student Consultants. Visit them through the week with your IT related questions or problems and they’ll do their best to help you out!
3. Supported Learning Groups (SLGs) get you through that challenging course!
SLGs are FREE, peer-led study groups meant to help you through historically challenging courses. These groups meet on a weekly basis and are designed to:
- Help you understand course content
- Meet students from your classes
- Give you a chance to learn in small groups
- Test your knowledge prior to exams
If you find yourself struggling in a course, or just need some practice before an exam or test, we HIGHLY recommend attending an SLG session.
4. We’ve got a Learning Centre just for you!
The third floor of the library houses “The Science Commons” and the “Math and Stats Learning Centre”. They both offer drop-in services and are staffed by Teaching Assistants in those respective areas, to answer any questions you may have.
As you can see, our library is more than just a place to study. We have a feeling you’ll be spending a lot of time there, so be sure to take a stroll through and familiarize yourself when you get to campus.
