Orientation sessions provide a friendly introduction to the library. They are offered for new students and staff.
In an orientation session, a library staff member will outline:
Services and facilities offered by the library
The range of available resources including e-resources
How to borrow from the library
How to use the catalog
The length of an orientation session and what information is included can be tailored to the specific needs of a group.
Information literacy sessions
As the skills required to find and use information successfully are essential for effective learning, the library offers sessions designed to help students develop these skills.
An information literacy session is ideally structured around a current course topic or assessment to provide a meaningful context for the development of the skills. Information Literacy modules include:
Scholarly vs. Popular Literature
Effective Web Searching
Evaluating Web Resources
Plagiarism and Academic Integrity
