The importance of being digital

'The importance of being digital' was a live question and answer session (broadcast online) about the skills and approaches that can help you use digital and online tools and technologies during your studies, at work or in your personal life.

After a short introduction attendees were able to ask questions using the live webchat, by tweeting us (@OU_Library) using #LibLive14 or by emailing Library-Services.

To help people start thinking we gave some examples of recent questions received by the helpdesk:

  • I’ve found an article on Google that I’d like to read but I can’t access it?
  • I’ve used information from a Tweet in my assignment and I’m not sure how to reference it?
  • How can I protect my online identity?

You can still watch the recorded output form the session  at
