Library’s orientation session for new faculty members


The Library staff held an orientation session for the new faculty members on Thursday 6th February in the Library. The session was facilitated by Bethlehem University’s Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning in coordination with the Library team.

This session aimed to introduce the new teachers to the system and databases used by the Library. The program included a brief introduction on the Library policies, publications and online acquisition. As one of the main resources of the Library, the online databases were explained and a demonstration of how to use them on and off campus followed.

The Library’s online public access catalog (OPAC) was also widely presented. This included the Library’s catalog, digitization project and the video streaming services. The Library is preparing for a new phase as the refurbishment plans are moving forward. So, the new design was presented so that the new faculty members may be able to give their feedback to the Library Staff.

The teachers were encouraged to use the Library’s different resources as they learned how to access them remotely.
