Orientation and information research skills classes

During each semester, RMIT libraries organize different orientation classes to both students and staff. These classes make students independent in finding information. This is the list of these classes:

  • Library tour (an introduction to the library)
  • Staying current with your research (how to save and re-run database searches, set up email alerts and receive table of contents, discussion lists and pre-print archives)
  • Catalogued demonstration
  • EndNote (An introduction to the popular bibliography tool)
  • Finding theses
  • Citation searching: web of knowledge
  • Introduction to databases, ejournals & ebooks
  • Finding journal articles
