University Librarianship Students to Visit H.I.

Continuing the practice of co-operation with other educational institutions, the Hunter Institute Libraries will be hosting students in Librarianship from Charles Sturt University. 

The future librarians will be visiting  Newcastle Campus Library on Wednesday, as part of their Professional Experience Unit of either the Masters or Bachelor courses in Librarianship.

While at Newcastle Library they will learn about the services provided by Hunter Institute Lilbraries and how they are met by the Institute’s highly trained, professional, dedicated and modest staff.

“Libraries are not mono-cultural, every library has unique needs and its own  way of doing things. Going to several libraries gives the students an opportunity to see the wide range of differences. This allows them to adapt to their future situations more effectively and makes them better able to meet the needs of the students and other library users”.
