The Library will launch a series of workshops on various topics in Mar 2015.  Staff and students who are interested in making effective use of information are welcome to join.

For students who have attended THREE Library Workshops within this academic year, their participation will be recorded in the Co-curricular Achievement Transcript (CAT) issued by the Student Affairs Office.  Among the THREE workshops, undergraduate students need to attend at least TWO core workshops.

Also, workshop participants who have made the same achievement of attending THREE workshops may obtain a certificate issued by the Library.
