LEAP 8 Research Paper and Presentation

Greetings From Your Librarian

Assignment Overview

Welcome to the LEAP 8 Assignment Guide! If you completed LEAP 5 or LEAP 6, you'll remember that an Assignment Guide is a special website that highlights the best resources for conducting research on your topic.

In LEAP 8, students prepare a major research paper and presentation on a topic of their choosing. 

The LEAP 8 instructors recommend using three types of information sources. This may include:

  • Books (in print or online) 
  • Journal articles (popular or scholarly)
  • Media (videos)
  • Reliable websites

This guide will help you start your research on a good foot!

Accessing Library Resources From Home

If you are accessing the library's online resources from off campus, you will be prompted to enter your 9-digit Langara ID and password. 

If you have not updated your password, it will follow the following format: FL-YYYYMMDD

F = first letter of your first name capitalized
L = first letter of your last name (family name) capitalized 
YYYYMMDD = year/month/day of your birthday 

If you tried this and are still unable to login, try resetting the password for your Langara ID. Langara's IT Department provides step-by-step instructions for resetting your password online. You can also contact the Registrar's Office by email at geninfo@langara.ca for assistance.

Please also note that the library's resources work best with the Internet browsers Chrome and Firefox.
