Description

Asia-Pacific Library and Information Conference 2018, 30 July - 2 August 2018 Gold Coast: Roar Leap Dare
 
This conference presentation (PowerPoint slides) supports the paper which discusses the challenge in ensuring students have access to library based learning resources at their point of need; whilst also having skills and background to be able to correctly use the resources.
 
ANU Library is one Library made up of five specialised branches, including the Hancock Library. Senior Information Staff from the Hancock Library, that are subject contacts for medical sciences, have traditionally offered hands on information literacy sessions on medical resources to ANU medical students. This has been complemented by a standard LibGuide. With multiple teaching locations throughout the ACT, south-east NSW and Northern Territory, there is a significant challenge in ensuring students have access to library based learning resources at their point of need; whilst also having skills and background to be able to correctly use the resources. Hancock Library staff undertook a systematic approach to completely reinvent Medicine LibGuide, to develop a pedagogically sound LibGuide for the needs of medical students.
