Short classes to learn about library services and resources

Versione stampabile

When: 13.30

The University Library System offers a series of short classes on how to make the best use of library services and resources.

The classes will focus on basic and advanced library services and will present a number of techniques to correctly perform bibliographic searches and use search tools like catalogues, databases and e-books to their full potential. The participants will learn to draft and organize academic texts and special attention will be given to bibliographic citations.

This initiative has been designed in a way that allows the participants to learn quickly (in about one hour) in an informal setting. Classes are geared to the student community.

No registration required.
