We offer a range of classes focusing on different subject areas. We’ll show you how to search relevant online databases to find high quality journal articles.

Still in doubt?  Previous attendees found our sessions “engaging”, “informative” and “relaxed”.  They liked the opportunity to try sample searches and the “step by step approach”.

Why not come along to a class and see for yourself?  Simply check our calendar of classes for details and choose the class and time that suits you. We look forward to meeting you.
