Information Skills

The Library offers induction tours at the beginning of October to introduce new students to the RCA Library collections. The tour also serves to familiarise students with the services we offer to support their research and studies at the College.

These are followed up by more specific and detailed workshops, which run during the academic year and are outlined below.
