LRC Newsletter Semester 2, 2018: Welcome


Time flies when WAI Community has been having fun in first half of the year. In Semester 1, LRC staff were busy in promoting our collections  and services via training in areas such as databases, orientation tours, EndNote and APA Referencing. We were also having fun in celebrating National Library Week in conjunction with Australia's Biggest Morning tea where we raised $197 for the Cancer Council. Thank you to all students and staff for your gold coin donations.

In Semester 2, the LRC has joined Student Services team and other teams in welcoming and introducing our new students to WAI. It was good to see students' enthusiasm and eagerness to learn by dropping in and studying in the LRC, as well as attending the LRC training sessions.

In this newsletter, you will find that there is a list of new resources were purchased for the WAI community, such as the Bloomsbury Food Library. The coverage in the collection is wide-ranging from pre-historic times to the present day which includes content relating to history, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, human geography, sustainability, agriculture, culinary arts, literary studies, political science, and developmental studies.

The LRC is always a hub of activities, and we are looking forward to meeting and assisting staff and students throughout the year.

Have a great Semester!
