Support for Teaching

The role of the Library in DkIT is to encourage, facilitate and enable learning, teaching and research. We endeavour to source, acquire and preserve information that is relevant to current research and Institute programmes.

Collection Development

Visit our Collections and Databases section for information about the material we currently hold. We provide a range of services through which you might access material from another library. You might also wish to recommend an item for the Library to purchase.

The Library welcomes donations that support the Institute’s aims of learning and teaching and which meet our collection development criteria. We also accept items relating to the DkIT Archive. Please see the Collection Development Policy for more information.

 

Recommending Material for Purchase

Teaching and research staff are encouraged to actively participate in the Library's Collection Development.  When you are preparing a new module or programme let us know so that we can help you to identify up-to-date and relevant sources of information.

Information Skills Training

The Library information skills programme is regularly updated and accessible to all DkIT Schools. Our information skills classes incorporate the pedagogical principles of Threshold Concepts for libraries as developed by the ACRL (Association of College & Research Libraries), which we have tailored for our own student body. Learning activities include site visits, in-class sessions and group-based practicals and workshops.
