This week marks the seventh annual Library Ireland Week which runs from Nov 12th to 18th. Library Ireland Week provides a yearly showcase for the work of libraries, librarians and information professionals.
The theme this year is ‘Libraries for literacy; everyday, everyway‘ and the focus is on the many and varied ways libraries promote and develop literacy and learning. The Therese Brady Library’s resources aim to develop, enhance and support the information literacy skills and learning of staff and students of the Irish Hospice Foundation as well as providing access to reliable information and supportive reading material on bereavement for the public.
Staff and students of the Irish Hospice Foundation can book in for a short library fix session to brush up on their information skills. These sessions cover anything from effectively using the library catalogue and literature searching to setting up personal searches and alerts, getting the most out of searching the internet or just finding out more about the range of resources available from the library. Contact Laura in the library to book a session email@example.com
