Teaching

Staff information skills development

Liaison librarians are available to assist academic staff to develop and enhance their research skills, as well as provide training for effectively utilising new and updated information resources. Instructional sessions may be in the form of workshops for groups, or individual consultations on a particular theme.  Examples of recent activities are:

  • Updating and reinvigorating course reading lists - tips and tricks
  • The library discovery service - advanced search skills
  • Citation management software - introductory or advanced sessions
  • Citation tracking, measuring impact and creating a research profile

The graduate attributes of acquiring communication and lifelong learning skills, and developing efficient research and information retrieval skills are fundamental objectives of the Library's mission to staff and students.

To arrange instructional sessions, please contact your liaision librarian.

 

Library teaching and information literacy - students

Liaison librarians are available to provide instruction on information literacy and research skills within academic programmes. This may be in the form of lectures, tutorials, workshops, activities and assessments. All teaching is designed to enhance and develop information literacy and research skills and to increase students awareness of library resources available.  Liaison librarians at Notre Dame all have relevant, formal training and experience in university teaching.

Less formal information literacy and research skills sessions for individuals or groups may also be arranged.
