A student walks into a university library ... (and how we are helping them once they're here) [slides]

National Library and Information Technicians Symposium, 27-29 September 2017 North Sydney: bridge to knowledge
 
This conference presentation (PowerPoint slides) supports the paper which discusses how the University of Sydney Library, in its traditional model, was no longer meeting all the needs and expectations of students.
