Library Induction Pathways

How can you help new and returning students get started with finding, using and citing academic sources? Tell them about the range of help available from the Library! 
We offer 'Welcome to the Library' introduction sessions at the start of trimester, aimed at new students, but open to all.  

This is just one part of the support available from Information Services. We offer a variety of training and support for you and your new students throughout the year, including on-demand subject-specific sessions, research support and reference management.  See Library Induction Pathways​​.   ​

All upcoming Library training sessions are listed on the Training and Events Calendar​.
