This specially designed workshop and tour combines humour, surprise and practical tips to help students become successful researchers.

Students will:

  • develop tips and tricks for more effective searches in libraries and on the internet
  • examine the consequences when research goes wrong
  • compare characteristics of reliable and unreliable websites
  • understand why it's important to be a critical and creative thinker in today’s world
  • develop their understanding of how to access the Library’s spaces, services and collections.
