Last 22-23th of September 2021, the University of Luxembourg organized a two days training on ‘How to Use the E-Library’ for FLP’s lecturers. It was the seventh training organised by the Project. The session, due to the Covid-19 situation in Laos and new lockdown, was led fully virtually with participants and our translator Mr. Dimitri joining from home via Zoom platform.
15 lecturers and librarians attended the training led by Ms Jevegenija from EIFL, with the assistance from Dr. Perrine, the Liaison Officer of the University of Luxembourg, and Ms. Thongkhoon Xayyahong, the Project Assistant, who were monitoring and helping the participants.
On the first day, the trainer introduced the participants to the new e-library, presented the resources now available digitally and asked trainees to run some small searches as an exercise. On the second day, the trainees explored more in depth the search platform by doing practical exercises consisting of finding specific resources on given research topics. This allowed them to learn how to find resources for their classes and research. The lecturers actively engaged with Ms. Jevgenija by asking questions and sharing their search results via Zoom features.
The e-library is an essential tool to strengthen access to knowledge and a concrete tool for teachers to prepare their classes and do research. More e-training will be coming soon!
The E-library is a digital version of a library accessible via internet which gives access to online databases containing books (e-books), academic journals and many other resources such as magazines and newspapers. Visit the webpage of the FLP: http://flp.nuol.edu.la/e-library/
