Going Greek: introducing the Cephalonian Method at WIT Libraries
MetadataShow full item record
At the Waterford Institute of Technology in Ireland, library services are being promoted in a positive light as an approachable, accessible, informative and welcoming centre of excellence. The learning support programme plays key role in this process. The programme's ultimate aim is to develop 'fishermen' - independent lifelong learners who are capable of recognising when information is needed and who have the ability to locate, access, evaluate and use effectively the needed information. The programme consists of a series of training sessions, including introductory library skills classes for undergraduates, advanced courses for second to final years and research support sessions for postgraduates and staff. In a bid to equip participants with a transferable set of information literacy skills, so as to improve the quality of their research output and ensure lifelong learning, the programme takes a student-centred approach.
