Event | October Library Workshops

In order to help all the students learn to use the various library resources and tools, our library has arranged 24 workshops lasting from September to November in Fall 2017. We have summarized the problems and difficulties that students in the past have encountered when using the library and have designed a series of topic-based lectures, so as to lead the students to fully discover the treasure of library knowledge. These workshops can help you improve your learning efficiency, master the skills of accurately searching for high-quality literature resources, and learn to prepare for writing an academic paper. This will be your first step from the library on the journey to your academic research. Delicious snacks and soft drinks will be provided at the workshops. Please do not miss these opportunities!

In October, our library will mainly focus on the E-resources our library has subscribed to. We will first go through all the E-book Databases, and then we will browse all Journal Databases by subjects. The schedule of the English sessions is as below:

P.S.: In September, our library mainly focused on the newly-implemented reading list system Leganto. In Leganto, an instructor can construct a list from all types of printed, electronic, and digital materials—from the library, scholarly sources, online bookstores, the instructor’s desktop, a reference manager, or simply the web. The Leganto solution enables students to browse through their course reading lists, access online materials, see availability and location data, request physical items, and suggest relevant content for inclusion in a reading list. Students can also engage in an online dialogue with instructors and other students about the reading list resources. Moodle could be better used by integrating to Leganto. We also provided an overview of all library resources and services, including different material types of resources, searching for resources in our library, as well as major services offered in our library. We offered two English sessions and two Chinese sessions for each topic.
