Did you know that you should brush up your information retrieval skills in every two years? While technology develops and Google advances, your relationship with information changes. If you are using the same technique to find online information that you were using two years ago, then it is time to enhance the ways in which you search for and retrieve information.
The Graduate Student Society wants to facilitate an effective research environment for graduate students. Innovation and discovery cannot be achieved without an awareness of previous and on-going research techniques. Harnessing new technology can help you to maximize the visibility and impact of you and your presentations, publications, and thesis or dissertation. If you want to improve your research skills, come to the research, retrieval, writing and repository workshop where the Leddy Library’s research facilitators will guide you on how to collect and organize your research materials using many hidden tools and techniques .
Thank you for your interest! Registration is now full. Enjoy the interactive poster here !

Hello all, please note the Graduate Students are being suffered the most because of the recent strike of CUPE 1393. Both the university administration and CUPE 1393 forgot the main focus that they are here because of us. We students are paying high tuition fees to get best service, yet for last one month we are being deprived of all lab, forge access and IT facilities. We demand explanation from the university why this strike is still going on? We request both parties to come back and negotiate within shortest possible time. If not, we would ask the University administration to refund our money, this can not be happening that we pay them free for nothing.
If they can not provide us with our paid services, they must REFUND our money.
Please fight for your right. Thank you.

Please note there is a strike going on from CUPE 1393. As a graduate student you have complete right either to ignore the picket lines and come join the university and work with your supervisor; or you can respect the picket lines showing solidarity with the union demands. We hope a resolution is been made very soon for the best interest of the students.
