Information Literacy: Introduction to the Library

This guide introduces you to all teaching modules taught by Khalifa University Librarians to preparatory students.

What will I learn in this Module?

Module 1 will introduce you to the library by looking and discussing the following:

  • Who are the Library staff?
  • Where things are in the Library
  • Various physical collections
  • Operating hours
  • An overview of the library website
  • Libguides and their benefits
  • Summon (one stop search)
  • Various collections in the library, including e-books & e-journals

You need to be in the Library for this module. The first part of Activity 2 gets you walking in the Library to find where things are. The second part introduces you to the library website. You need to use a computer for that.
