Additional resources for developing students' research skills

Southern Cross University Librarians will help you develop the information skills your students need to succeed in their studies. This will ensure your students leave university with the skills they need to find and manage information and to develop effective lifelong learning skills. With this in mind, the Library has developed an Information Literacy Statement to formalise our commitment to the development of information skills in the Southern Cross University community.

The Faculty and College Librarians can help you in many ways, including:

  • facilitating a thread in a discussion board in MySCU;
  • providing tips and answering questions relating to an assessment task;
  • linking to existing online tutorials and guides;
  • providing tailored workshops and classes;
  • developing research skills and utilising the online teaching resources.

Use these resources to help your students hone their research skills and locate the information they need to complete their assessments.
