Library Workshops and Online Courses

Another new academic year is about to start. To support the learning and research needs of students and staff, the Library continues to offer three online courses and will conduct a series of workshops in hybrid mode.

  • Library Online Courses

    The Library has developed three self-paced online courses on Learn@PolyU to help students get started with their study and research.

    • Library Resources and Services for Undergraduate Students (6 Modules)
    • Library Resources and Services for Postgraduate Students (6 Modules)
      Tailored for undergraduate and postgraduate students, respectively, both courses are designed to equip students with the most essential skills and knowledge to conduct research for assignments and research projects.
    • Using EndNote (8 Modules)
      Designed for both students and staff, the course aims at helping researchers learn the key features of EndNote, a reference management tool for citing and organising references used in the assignments and research works.
