HSC students

The current learning environment is particularly challenging for HSC students. Our specialist librarians have put together a series of online workshops that will help students find the right tools, manage citations, recognise the best quality information sources and most importantly save valuable time. Sessions will be offered via Zoom and topics covered are:

Finding the right sources online: 21 May 4.30–5pm

You search online all the time, but are you finding what you need? This session helps you look for sources of scholarly content for the HSC, including alternatives to the common ones found in search engines.

Getting better results from your searches: 28 May 4.30–5pm

If you want to search for perfect resources online, and save time in the process, there are ways of searching to get you better results. This session goes through some hints and tips to maximise your search results.

Better searching with online resources: 4 June 4.30–5pm

Does it sometimes feel like there are too many resources to look through to find what you need? In this online session, we will simplify searching for you so that the skills you need in one resource can be applied to all.

Citing your work and avoiding plagiarism: 11 June 4.30–5pm

Plagiarism is presenting another person’s work or ideas as your own. This session shows you how to get the right citations from academic resources to present your own work in the best way possible.

Essential Library resources for your research and study: 18 June 4.30–5pm.

This session brings together the key resources for HSC subjects, including those that are useful for studying Advanced and Extension courses. These essential eresources and websites will help you find the best information, which can be used from anywhere, anytime with a Library card.

To get the most from these online workshops, we recommend signing up for a Library card first. You can start accessing resources as soon as you receive your card number via email.
