Training events for groups are usually booked in by lecturers / tutors, but students may book sessions for smaller groups themselves.
Drop-in training sessions usually take place from September to April and are advertised within the Library on the LCD screen. Please keep an eye out for any sessions you are interested in attending, if a particular time does not suit you it may be available at a different time the following week. Mayo Nursing students are welcome to contact your Subject Librarian with training enquiries.
Training in the library
The library offers a broad range of training options for all students and staff in GMIT.
Here are some of the options:
Online Training is now available through MS Teams - more information to follow.
Instant help with queries is available on our online chat service on our home page here
The Academic Writing Centre (AWC) is also housed in the library Group Study room. There are eight half hour one-to-one sessions per week. The Centre offers focused academic writing tuition to students at all levels, in all years. Find out more and pre-book on the library website.
Most library training sessions take place in the Library in the Group Study room on the first floor. If a group is too large to be accommodated in the room, it is preferable to split large groups up for more effective results.
If you are unable to attend a library session, keep an eye on the plasma screen in case any sessions are coming up and don't forget that many of our tutorials are available online, including Searching the Online Catalogue, Setting up a Library PIN, Placing Holds, Searching Online Databases and Setting up an EndNote Account.
All of our online tutorials are available on the Library's YouTube channel.
