Our Find it Fast! workshops will be running between February 20 and March 8 to help all undergraduate and taught postgraduate students make the most of our resources.
At the Library we believe you should be spending the majority of your time reading materials and not looking for them, so we have a range of workshops to help you learn how to get your hands on the best books, articles, reports and other information in the shortest time possible.
These are our Find it Fast! workshops and they will be running between February 20 and March 8. They are held over lunch time in The Sir Duncan Rice Library and are a great introduction to the services and resources we provide. The sessions cover:
Using Google cleverly to get you to the information you need more quickly.
Using the many databases which we subscribe to. They contain important resources which you just cannot find by searching in Google!
How to search for the hundreds of thousands of electronic books which we have access to.
Invest one hour of your time over lunch to learn tips and techniques that will repay you with time saved when searching for the materials you need for assignments and exams!
