Empowering KCU Library User Community: Training on E-Resources usage and new book arrivals

In a bid to enhance access and use of the physical and Electronic resources at King Ceasor University (KCU) Library, user training has been designed. The user training is geared to enhance access to reliable and up-to-date information relevant to every field. Thus, recently we have witnessed a notable initiative where nursing students have undergone comprehensive training sessions focused on e-resource access and utilization. These training programs aim to familiarize students with various digital and remote access platforms, databases, and tools essential for evidence-based practice and continuous learning.

The impact of such training initiatives extends beyond the realm of academia, with far-reaching implications for the library user community. Empowering nursing students and other library users with the skills to harness the power of e-resources not only enhances their academic journey but also prepares them to navigate the complexities of modern healthcare practice with confidence and proficiency.

The KCU Library team has planned to conduct related training to other user groups to ensure that relevant resources are accessible and used in a timely fashion in support of innovative teaching, learning and research in the entire KCU community.   

Additionaly we are pleased to announce the arrival of an exciting array of Computer Forensics books at our Library. Dive into the fascinating world of digital investigation, cybersecurity, and data analysis with these latest additions to our collection.

We remain committed to supporting your academic and research endeavors by providing access to cutting-edge resources and fostering a culture of continuous learning within our community.

Best regards,
