Throughout the academic year, the Documentation and Libraries Service promote presentations and orientation sessions about the UMinho libraries, services, bibliographic and information resources available on the UMinho network and in open access, addressed to the 1st year students (1st and 2nd cycle degrees), open to the whole community or for groups by request.
Presentation sessions aimed at new students (1st year - 1st and 2nd cycles)
At the beginning of each academic year, the Documentation and Libraries Service is available to hold sessions to introduce UMinho libraries to students in the 1st year of the 1st cycle and 2nd cycle degrees, with the aim of providing basic information on the general functioning of the library services and bibliographic ressources available, providing students with the necessary autonomy to efficiently locate relevant information for carrying out their academic work. These sessions must be requested and organized through the Course Directors.
