The start of Session 3 is just around the corner, so we’ve put together a list of tips to help you get ready for some summer study!
1. Know your dates
Make sure you have the Important Dates calendar bookmarked in your browser, and make a note of things like Online Orientation and Census date. We’ve pulled together the first few highlights for you here, but it’s worth keeping an eye on it yourself, too. Find out about application deadlines, exam periods and results releases, all in one place!
- Session 3 Online Orientation: 9th November – 17th November
- Start of Session 3: 18th November
- Session 3 Census Date: 6th December
- Mid-session break: 24th December – 1st January
2. Find your Library resources
The library playes a huge role in delivering your course content. Got links to eBooks, articles or eReserve in your modules? That’s us! No links? No problem! Watch the short video below to find out how to locate your subject readings in Primo.
You should also check to see if your subject has a Research Skills Guide (RSG). These are specialised guides designed by librarians to help you build and apply research skills in your subject. To find yours, enter your subject code in the search bar.
If your subject doesn’t have an RSG, take a look at our discipline-focused Library Resource Guides (LRG)! These are broader than RSGs, but are just as useful, and contain a comprehensive roundup of resources and services you can use to support your study.
3. Brush up on your research skills
Join us for Online Library Workshops on finding journal articles, using eBooks and many more. These are free, hour-long sessions run by Charles Sturt Librarians that work really well to support the information you will find in Library Resource Guides. Also, explore the Library’s website for resources on peer review and referencing.
