Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Library Resources & Tips for TAs

  • Subject Librarians

    Subject Librarians are your first point of contact and can help introduce you to subject specific library resources to support your teaching and research objectives.

    Find your Subject Librarian here.

  • Instruction Support

    Teaching a lab, seminar, or class? We can help with Library Instruction!

    Librarians will work with you to support students' development of research and information literacy skills. Instruction may take the form of an in-class session, a customized online resource (i.e. a module in Canvas or a course tab in a research guide), or a virtual session through Adobe Connect, Zoom, Google Meet or another platform if the class is online.

    Some common topics are as follows:

    • identifying types of information sources used in a discipline or subject area
    • an introduction to article database searching,
    • evaluating information sources/critical thinking,
    • distinguishing between scholarly and popular sources, and
    • using citation guides and tools.
  • Research Support

    The Library has many services to support your students’ research.

    These include scheduled research consultations with a librarian, subject specific online research guides, quick reference at the reference desk, and virtual reference through Ask a Librarian.
