This post was brought to you by the Learning & Teaching Services Librarians. 

LaTS Librarians look after online and on campus students and facilitate classes that are face-to-face, as well as online.  A typical day for a LaTS Librarian could consist of making a teaching video for a Moodle unit, teaching or giving a tour in the library, meeting with students or academics, and completing a shift answering online queries.   

LaTS offer the following classes regularly:

  • Borrowing and Library ‘Search’
  • Searching effectively for your assignments
  • Selecting the best information for your assignments
  • How to find subject specific information

Classes about EndNote, software to store and manage your references, are also offered.

For our academics, we can assist with, or point you in the right direction for the following:

  • Reading List
  • Orders
  • Inter-library loans
  • EndNote
  • Borrowing from other universities

LaTS Librarians are passionate about what they do and look forward to assisting you with your academic needs!
