Description

ALIA National 2014 Conference, 15-19 September 2014 Melbourne : together we are stronger

This conference presentation describes how Charles Sturt University librarians combined two platforms already existing in the Library to deliver a personalised and flexible experience that met the complex needs of first year mature off campus students. The new generation of mature, working professionals returning to study have different expectations and needs to the traditional first year student. Their situations demand that they be able to pick up the research skills they need while working in their own timeframes.
