Can I get help with research and referencing at home?Posted: July 28, 2016
Yes, you can. Book an online session and consult with a library specialist from home or work. It’s quick and easy to set up.
That’s right, you can have a virtual meeting from the comfort of your bed/office. Using Cisco WebEx (similar to Skype), a library specialist can provide assistance with researching and referencing queries.
Cisco WebEx is awesome for desktop sharing. This means the library specialist can show you what’s happening on their computer screen. You’ll be able to follow along when they are demonstrating how to search that tricky database or library catalogue.
You can also share what’s happening on your computer screen. This will be handy for when you need advice on that reference list you’ve been working on forever. If they can’t see what you’ve done, how can they possibly help?
Do you have computer with a reliable internet connection, a working microphone and speakers and/or a headset? Great! You are all ready for your online consult! A webcam is not essential.
You can even join a consultation using a smart phone or tablet. However, this option does not allow you to share your device’s screen. You will also need to download the Cisco WebEx Meetings app.
Try it! Simply choose an online session from the list of available consultation times and book in. After we receive your booking, we email you details on how to access the meeting. Book now!
See you online!
