If you find yourself confused about how to do research for your assignments, we can help you with that!

First, have a look through our tutorials and guides about research. These can help answer the initial things you are confused about. All of our video tutorials are less than 6 minutes in length!
For example, if you need to learn how to use the library's catalogue to find an item, try watching our Conducting Research Using Library Resources and How to Search Library Databases: Basics video tutorials. Our Learn to Research guide will also give you the basics on the research process.
A listing of all of our video tutorials can be found here, and the related research guides can be found here.


If you need to learn how to use APA citation style, or it has been a while since you have used it, we have our Intro to APA series that will take you through everything you need to know. Starting with an introduction to citation, this four-part course will guide you through how to create a reference list, write in-text citations, and teach you how to proofread and edit your document before you hand it in. All four parts will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours to complete (20-30 minutes per section). Start here with Part One!
If you just need to look up a few things or just want information about APA, use our APA (6th Edition) Guide.

For all other questions or extra help, either email library@norquest.ca and ask a librarian to contact you or use the live chat on the library's website.
