Hi Kate, I enjoyed reading and reflecting on your blog. It is interesting to read what you say about the librarian led lessons at the start of each subject. I agree that this would be beneficial. QUT library does have tutorials in search techniques. I attended a “Back to Study” one in orientation week, which was very hands on and included Boolean techniques, which I like you had used but didn’t know the term. I think subject specific ones would be useful and if they were part of the teaching plan students would be more likely to be aware of them and attend. I personally find Quick Find a bit hit and miss, I an cpy and paste a journal article from the readings and still struggle to find it sometimes.
