Day 7 & 8 or Read Your Library Guide

5 Dec

 More examples of Australian Brutalism. It’s growing on me.

If you are a student, I have two words for you: Library Guides. These are lovingly and painstakingly prepared by librarians (and librarian students on placement) and are your one-stop-shop for everything you need to know about what and how you are studying, the resources you can access and how to find them and make the best use of them. If you are an academic, I have two words for you: Library Guides. Recommend them to your students. Here is a fine example:

Monash Library Guide – Architecture

I would also like to express my gratitude to library staff for their work on electronic reading lists. These list enable students to link to their reading materials with a click or two or maybe three, from anywhere at anytime. This means you do not have to get up of your arse and go and find anything yourself. If, as a student you have ever complained about these wonderful electronic reading lists then you are a lazy ingrate who should try going and searching for the paper based item instead. So there!
