Information Literacy

Assignment design

When you are setting an assignment it might be worth meeting with library staff to ensure we have the resources  in place to meet your needs. Alternatively, you might consider designing an assignment in a way to encourage students to develop library research skills. 

Please get in touch if we can work with you on this.

Information Literacy

We look forward to hearing from you if you class needs guidance on how to make the best use of library resources.

  • First year library induction informs students of our services and resources.
  • A further tutorial can be arranged to help them with a particular assignment.
  • These must be pre booked and planned with the relevant subject librarian

This can take place :

  • In a theatre or class room with internet access
  • In a lab where the students can take part
  • Advanced tutorials in database use for 2nd-4th years

We also encourage student to make their own appointments for 0ne to one sessions.
