The library offers a variety of training programmes and events. Training is available in group sessions, one-to-one or via online tutorials.
LIST: Library Information Skills Training
The library can provide a myriad of options for training/instruction (LIST) on our comprehensive range of information resources.
We recommend contacting your dedicated Subject Librarian to discuss the option most suited to your needs. A customised library workshop or tutorial is possible for undergraduate students within their own classroom or in the library training room. Academic staff, researchers, and postgraduates can request their own individual research consultation.
The Library’s Subject Librarians help develop students’ information and research skills to improve their ability to find the variety of resources relevant to their assignments. Skills covered include: identifying information needs and learning how to find, evaluate and effectively use the information across a range of sources and technologies. These skills contribute to the development as informed and independent learners.
To book an Information Session contact your own Subject Librarian directly.
LIFT: Library Information Finding Tutorials
Academic staff, are you frustrated by your students favouring Google and Wikipedia and not using academic sources? Let the library help. Academic staff can request a customised workshop or library tutorial in the classroom by contacting their own dedicated Subject Librarian.
GIFT: Group Information Finding Tutorials
