LibSkills

A suite of library training opportunities

Welcome to LibSkills! 

LibSkills is about helping you to get the most out of the multitude of BGU Library resources, services and facilities at your disposal.

Whether you're an undergraduate, a postgraduate or a member of staff, enhance your existing skills and develop new ones by taking up one or more of the opportunities below.

All tutorials are delivered by members of the library team and are available as 1-to-1 appointments or appointments with small groups (up to 12 people).  Feel free to mix and match the topics to suit your individual or group needs.

Some topics have two levels of input meaning you can choose from a 15 minute introduction to the topic or a 45 minute more in-depth approach.

If you are a member of staff, we also offer the topics below as bespoke in-curriculum sessions (at least one week’s notice is required).  For more information about these please contact Amber at amber.edwards@bishopg.ac.uk.

If you would like to meet with a librarian for more general help and advice, or to discuss a topic not listed below, click here to make a booking.
