BOOK A SUPPORT SESSION
Are your students working on an assignment, report or thesis and need advice on good sources and search techniques or referencing or academic writing?
If you are a lecturer teaching at National College of Ireland, you can book a session from the Library Help Centre for your students. If you wish to book a session, try and do so at least three days in advance if possible – you can book a session via email or phone or in person. Please provide us with (i) the details of the module and course (ii) the details of the assignment or project that you would like the session to link into (iii) what kind of help the students need and (iv) specify your preferred date and time for the session.
The hours of the Library Help Centre adapt to demand so if you require an early evening or Saturday session, this is also possible provided we are given enough notice and the time slot is available.
