South Metropolitan TAFE Library Service: Information Literacy and Copyright

Welcome to the South Metropolitan TAFE Library

Library Training

   Library Training

The Library Service offers a range of information literacy and orientation sessions for your students.

Orientation sessions explain the use of the library facilities and the services we offer. These are available in the campus libraries, for International Students Orientation Day, and, on request, at campuses without a library. Library Orientation sessions are conducted at the beginning of each term, generally in the Library, and may be booked by Lecturers during class time.

Information Literacy sessions can be conducted at most campuses on topics such as:

  • Find it – Finding information using Supersearch, Databases and our online resources
  • Use it – Evaluating information, using quotes and paraphrases
  • Reference it – Correctly referencing in assignments using the APA referencing style

Please contact your local campus Library for more information about information literacy and orientation sessions.

We also have this information available online as self-paced courses. See our Library Know How page for more information.



Sharing quality information resources with your students is an important part of the teaching and learning experience, but what if the copyright of that resource is owned by somebody else?

In order to comply with your responsibilities under the Copyright Act, you need to understand the requirements of the Act in an educational institution, and to label (attribute) resources correctly
