Automatic redirect not happening?  Being asked for a password you don't have?  Denied access?  Use the authentication page to verify that you are a University of Regina student, then try again.

Still not working?  Contact ITS.

If using your library barcode to authenticate: In order to have access Off Campus the library barcode on your University Identity Card needs to be activated.Come to Help Desk in the Dr. John Archer Library with your card to activate the library barcode.

Help and Research/Citation Support

***for Fall 2017***

Note that the Librarian and the Library Help Desk can point you to resources for citation, but you are responsible for writing and correcting your own citations.

Please read through the following carefully, and make sure you understand the guidelines for seeking help before you email the librarian.

Make sure you understand whether you need help with research (finding articles, reports, and other information) or with citation (using APA style to cite your sources).


Help for research questions is available:

- Liaison Librarian (Kate.Cushon@uregina.ca) - email answers, face-to-face appointments
- Library Help Desk - online chat, face-to-face (main floor, Archer Library, drop-in during opening hours or make an appointment)


Help for citation questions is available:

There will be a Success Seminar focused on citation for e-scan 1:

Tuesday 3 October (5:30) in ED 106
Wednesday 4 October (5:30) in ED 106
Friday 6 October (10:00) in CL 110

It is strongly advised that you attend one of these seminars to familiarize yourself with APA citation.

Once you have attended this Success Seminar or otherwise learned about the basics of APA, drop-in sessions will be hosted in the Library where you can ask specific questions about citations in your e-scan assignments. Please note these sessions will not cover the basics of APA citation, they will be for answering specific questions about the citations you have already drafted.

Schedule:
Thursday October 5, 9:00-11:00 and 1:00-3:00, Wascana Room (LY 107.33, Archer Library main floor)
Friday October 6, 1:00-3:00, Regina Room (LY 107.32, Archer Library main floor)
Monday October 23, 9:00-11:00, Regina Room (LY 107.32, Archer Library main floor)
Tuesday October 24, 9:00-11:00 and 1:00-3:00, Regina Room (LY 107.32, Archer Library main floor)


If you cannot attend the Success Seminar on citation or any of the scheduled drop-in sessions, you can try reaching out for individual citation help, but be aware that help available on an individual basis is very limited:

Library Help Desk - online chat, face-to-face (main floor, Archer Library, drop-in during opening hours or make an appointment)

Additionally, you can email your question to the liaison librarian (Kate.Cushon@uregina.ca). However, priority will be given to research questions, and your citation question might not be answered in a timely or detailed manner.

Tips for emailing about citation questions (that might get a faster answer):
1. Include the citation itself that you have already attempted to create (including the parenthetical reference, if applicable). No attachments, please. Copy and paste the citation(s) into the email message.
2. Mention what resources you used to create the citation (OWL, LibGuide, etc.), and their relevance to the specific problem you are having.

Online guides to APA citation include:
Library Guide to APA Resources
OWL at Purdue APA guide
