About Library Workshops

Library offers workshops on different topics each semester to staff and students of PolyU so as to sharpen their research skills in locating, evaluating, managing and reusing information.

The topics for the workshops cover the following themes:

  • Theme 1: Essential skills for academic success
  • Theme 2: Staying focused: tapping on specialized information tools
  • Theme 3: Reference management tools
  • Theme 4: Research analysis: tools to support authors and scholarly publishing

CAT & e-Certificate

Students who have participated in our workshops will have their attendance recorded in the Co-curricular Achievement Transcript (CAT) issued by the Centre STARS by July, after the completion of all Topical Workshops for the semester. Participants can also apply for an e-certificate issued by the Library after logging in to the workshop page (click “CAT & e-Certificate”).
