NOTICE OF SERVICE DISRUPTIONS:

The first basement in the William Cullen Library is undergoing refurbishment to make the area more user friendly in the future.  The project will take place  from 11 August  to 12 September 2014. During this period only selected library staff and construction workers will have access to the first basement.  Students, academics and researchers will still be able to access the material via our William Cullen Library Circulation Desk.  Library Staff members will collect materials from the basement and make the items  available for use in areas unaffected by construction.

For those who are sensitive to dust and noise, we would like to encourage you to make use of the other libraries on campus.  If you are looking for a quiet area to study, you might like to try using the 24hour reading room in Wartenweiler Library.

INFORMATION LITERACY: SCHOOL OF LANGUAGE, LITERATURE AND MEDIA STUDIES

SLLM STUDENTS

In the first semester the library introduced an information literacy project to develop a set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyse and use information. A face to face lecture was given and a Sakai online tutorial was created which focused on the following key elements of Information literacy:

  • Need for Information
  • Find Information
  • Evaluate Information
  • Manage Information
  • Synthesise Information
  • Appropriate Use

 

To guide the library in future Information literacy programmes we invite you to complete our online survey. Your feedback will assist the library to evaluate the impact of the Information literacy project and to identify areas where we can improve. The survey should only take about 5 minutes to complete and all responses are anonymous. The survey concludes on 29 August 2014.

Thank you for your input.
