Tutorials and our Faculty Librarians

We’ve posted previously about the suite of online tutorials we have been developing. There are now 12 of these that are live, covering a range of different topics:

  • Introduction to dissertation research
  • Catalogue and discover
  • Basic literature searching
  • Bibliographic databases
  • Accessing full text online
  • Referencing
  • Your reading list and beyond
  • The Information Cycle
  • Plagiarism and copyright in the academic context
  • Using archives and special collections in your research
  • Research in museums and galleries
  • Palaeography
The Beyond Your Reading List tutorial

The tutorials are designed to be engaging and enjoyable to use. They can be found via our Develop Your Skills webpages, or via the subject guides

We are now moving into the next phase of development, looking to produce 3 further tutorials that will cover:

  • Business resources – both as an introduction for those studying business, but also for the wider purpose of using these resource to research companies and markets ahead of interviews
  • Law resources
  • Using Google Scholar in a Durham context
Some of our business resources

The production of the tutorial in conjunction with our colleagues at the Durham Centre for Academic Development is just one of the many tasks that our Faculty Librarians (FLs) are involved with. And next week our social media output is going to be focused on the role of the FLs and how they assist with helping users find, manage and use information via our library resources. There’ll be study tips, FAQs and an opportunity to ask questions directly to the FLs themselves! So keep an eye on our social media platforms from Monday 7th February…!
