Digital Skills workshops

The Library, in collaboration with ITD and CTL, is providing digital skills workshops for students (also open to staff) in Weeks 4, 5 & 6.  These workshops are designed in direct response to UL student feedback in the INDeX (Irish National Digital Experience) survey.  

The workshops focus on tools and technologies that are available to UL students to assist with their academic work. Please share with your students if you want them to attend any of these sessions. Contact Michelle Breen, Head of Information Services in the Glucksman Library if you want to know more about this series of digital skills workshops.

Some of the sessions are recorded and archived here
