What can Librarians do for you?

Liaison Librarians

Your Liaison Librarians can help you with:

  • information literacy skills workshops for your students, which may be based on a particular assignment such as an essay or report, or they could focus on using a specific database or information resource.
  • library training sessions. These can be delivered as part of a tutorial either face-to-face or via Collaborate. There are also a range of workshops available on general topics like: Exploring 'Library Search', Referencing and Plagiarism.
  • researching and referencing assignment topics or creating short videos to support your teaching methods.
  • evaluating quality online information resources.
  • referencing queries.
  • assistance with requesting eReadings, Interlibrary loans and purchase requests.

A drop-in-room service is available at Casuarina Library during semester, 10am-1pm, Monday to Friday. Please promote this to your students.
