Training Sessions

The library delivers information sessions designed to introduce users to the most common information research topics and related online resources. Occasionally, we also invite representatives from our licensed information providers to come and speak in depth about their products, or offer online training sessions.

The library also offers the possibility of arranging training sessions tailored to your learning needs.

All sessions, unless stipulated otherwise, are open to students, staff, faculty and Alumni. Please sign up 24 hours in advance of any session by emailing the Library.
