COVID-19 Statement

In keeping with the need for physical distancing during COVID-19, the Learning & Teaching Team have created Canvas modules which can be supplemented with live Q&A clinics with Library staff via Teams, to address students’ specific issues or queries about the content covered in Canvas.

Canvas modules provided by UCC Library will help students with research skills. They are available on the Library website for students to self enrol. They can also be embedded into academic modules.
