GZU Library hosted Electronic Resources Training Sessions

The Library Department hosted a three day electronic information resources training sessions from 6th – 8th September 2016. Computer laboratory practical sessions and information kiosks were concurrently offered at various university sites, which included: all Libraries and Resources Centres, Mucheke Campus Computer Laboratory, Social Science Campus Computer Laboratory, and Mashava Campus Teaching and Learning Centre Computer Laboratory. The training sessions enabled students and staff to be voluntarily trained with a view of nurturing sustainable utilisation and independent use of electronic resources for teaching, learning and research. This was against the background that the GZU community had access to over 20 electronic databases covering 160,000 electronic books and 22,000 electronic journal titles.

Electronic information resources training is increasingly becoming important in the contemporary environment due to technological change and proliferating information resources. Individuals are faced with diverse, abundant information choices in their academic studies, and in research, due to the escalating complexity of this environment. Effective use of these resources requires relevant information literacy skills, and these skills stretch beyond the simple technical skills of using specific databases or sources.

The next Electronic Resources Week would be held in early 2017 during the beginning of the second semester. Please keep checking for more information about this event from this site, or simply like us on our Facebook page #gzu_library or follow us on Twitter @gzu_library
