There is a lot of information for new arrivals to take in during orientation week. When you have had a chance to catch your breath, come along to the Library any time when we are open – all the staff here will be happy to help you with anything related to our study facilities, information resources and information skills training.
To make sure that you can hit the ground running, you should attend our Foundation skills classes in weeks 1 and 2. These classes are aimed at Masters level students, but anybody is welcome to attend. The classes are:
Foundation 1: Finding items on your reading list & citing them in an assignment
This class will give you an introduction to the Library, help you to decipher your reading list, find and access print and electronic material in the Library, and avoid plagiarism in your written work.
This class is offered twice a day from Monday 2 October – Friday 6 October, at 1pm-2pm and 5:30pm-6:30pm.
Foundation 2: Effective literature searching in Google and PubMed
This class provides an introduction to literature searching skills, helping you to search more effectively and efficiently.
This class is offered twice a day from Monday 9 October – Friday 13 October, at 1pm-2pm and 5:30pm-6:30pm.
All of the classes are held in the Library.
