Drop-in sessions

Library Research Skills drop-in sessions

Drop-in online to get expert advice from a librarian. In these drop-ins, Librarians work with students and staff to develop skills in:

  • how and where to start researching a topic
  • finding and evaluating information
  • access to and use of Library collections, databases and the Internet
  • researching for assessments and projects
  • citing and referencing: identifying sources and using referencing styles

In Semester 2 2021, the online Library Research Skills drop-in service is available Monday to Wednesday 12pm to 8pm AEST, and Thursday to Friday 12pm to 5pm AEST, via ZOOM

Please note that the drop-in service will not operate on Friday the 24th of September, Monday the 27th of September or Tuesday the 28th of September, and will run for the reduced hours of 12pm to 2pm in the mid-semester break (Wednesday the 29th of September to Friday the 1st of October). The service will resume normal hours on Monday the 4th of October.

REMEMBER: Open Zoom and sign-in before you use the link above to join a drop-in session. Otherwise, Zoom's security features may ask you to 'Authenticate' and prevent you from joining.

After joining the session, you will be greeted by one of our facilitators who will direct you to a 15-20 minute one-on-one conversation with a Librarian.

If you would like to share your screen with one of our experts, please make sure you connect via a Laptop or Desktop device.
