This blog post features collections and services for the Donald School of Business (DSB), as well as information about RDC Library at the DSB and at Main Campus.
RDC Library is at the DSB Learning Common! The Information Desk is open Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Ask our friendly staff if you need to sign out technology including laptops, flip camcorders, digital microphones, calculators, and more, or if you need some help using the scanners or multimedia workstation software. You can also buy a bus pass, load your iCard, print, book group study rooms, and sign out reserve texts.
We can also provide research and citation help. We are happy to help you with all of your questions, so please do ask!
We also offer Academic Support, which includes the Math Learning Centre, peer tutoring, the Writing Skills Centre, Learning Skills and Strategies, and Disability Resources, which provides specialized support for students.
DSB students are invited to access these resources: we have peer tutors who are happy to meet you at the DSB! If you’d like a bit of writing help, we are also a member of eTutor Alberta, which provides online writing tutoring. Like all of our tutoring, this service is free to RDC students!
We also encourage students to study with us at RDC Library on Main Campus. We encourage all students to use our quiet study space, group study rooms, computers, and comfortable seating. Our Winter Term Hours allow you to study until 9 PM Monday to Thursday, and 5 PM on Friday, as well as weekends. Check for our extended hours during exams.
We have added a number of new books to our DSB collection: in this past year, titles included:
- Big Data @ Work: Dispelling the Myths, Uncovering the Opportunities
- Financial Intelligence: a Manager’s Guide to Knowing What the Numbers Really Mean
- How to Say Anything to Anyone: a Guide to Building Business Relationships that Really Work
- Lead with a Story: a Guide to Crafting Business Narratives that Captivate, Convince, and Inspire
- The Virtual Self: How our Digital Lives are Altering the World Around Us.
Your iCard is also your library card, so have a look at our collection!
We also have library guides for many DSB programs, including Administrative Professional, Business, Communications & Media, Law & Legislation, and Unit Clerks. These guides include sections on how to research, finding books and articles, evaluating information, and citation, as well as how to Ask Us! via chat, text, phone, and email.
RDC Library provides learner-centred resources and services to all students, staff, and faculty, as well as our community. For more information, please contact Jillian Sinotte, Librarian for the Donald School of Business.
