Studying online? Get support here!

Sutherland and Cronulla libraries are each providing dedicated staff, once a week, to assist with study online. It's a great opportunity to meet other online students face to face and discuss the issues particular to this style of study.

Sutherland Shire Libraries are working with OUA as part of the OUA Connect library program, developed by the Student Success unit of Open Universitities Australia. Studies have found that online students are much more likely to progress through their coursework and meet their goals, if they have some face to face support.

That's where the library can step in. Staff can guide students through the OUA, and partner educational institution websites and systems. Whilst location of resouces for assessment tasks is, of course, the librarian's specialty. Put them to the test!

You are welcome to attend the informal sessions, whether you are a first timer, tackling one unit or an old hand going for a full degree. There is no requirement to be studying through OUA just online. What happens at each session, is dependant upon what you, the participants want to know. There is no obligation to attend all sessions, attend one or all. The choice is yours.

Meeting times are:
Cronulla Library - every Monday evening, 6pm - 7pm
Sutherland Library - every Saturday afternoon, 2pm - 3pm

The sessions commence this coming Monday 25th November and will continue through to the end of Study Period 4, Saturday 22nd February 2014.
