Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed to visit or use a library to find information? You are not alone; many people have this “library anxiety” and the TRU Library is here to help you. You don’t have to be an expert to use the library, you only have to be willing to learn and to ask for help.
If you prefer to try and answer your own questions, take some time to explore this guide. It is intended to be a general introduction on to how to find and use the resources in the TRU Library.
If you still have questions after going through this guide, please ask us! There are no "dumb" questions -- only unasked ones.
The key to successful library research lies in knowing the terminology and devising a "plan of attack."
TRU Open Learning (formerly BCOU) designed a set of three academic style guides which rely heavily on and extend or modify some version of MLA or APA style.
NOTE: Only use the guides in this section if specified in your course.
