Library Online Learning Events in Sem 2 AY2019/20

Following the suspension of face-to-face teaching, the Library has put together a series of online learning events focused on the effective use of e-resources. Delivered via Zoom, facilitators include representatives from our e-resource vendors as well as HKBU faculty and librarians. HKBU staff and students are all welcome to attend.

A variety of topics are covered, including resource searching in databases, language learning, information literacy, information technology skills, and more.

Participation in our Learning Events is recognized under the University’s Co-Curricular Learning (CCL) programme. Depending on the length of the Event, participants will receive a half credit or full credit. Please refer to individual Event descriptions for details of CCL status.
