9 Collaboration with Institute of Koorie Education staff personalised Library research skills training for IKE students during on-campus intensive study blocks off campus resource delivery to students’ homes promoting library help, online or by phone when students return to their communities

10 Waurn Ponds Library Staff are approachable and helpful and have encouraged staff at the Institute to use them in arranging workshops for a range of activities … tailored to specific disciplines, for specific workshops/presentations in speciality areas. … Koorie students are being encouraged to use the library and to use it well which then flows through into their research activities. I know that I can send students to the library and that they will be looked after really well. Ms. Brenda Brodie, Lecturer, Institute of Koorie Education

11 ‘ You have no idea how much your quick response, support and expertise meant... I would like to say THANK YOU. I appreciate your genuine care. You are definitely on the side of the angels.’ (Student, Institute of Koorie Education)

24 Incarcerated students Deakin students in correctional facilities are permitted very limited communication options – usually Telstra landlines and Australia Post! Each institution has different guidelines Calls are timed and supervised Mail is vetted internet access is very limited, if allowed at all

25 Who would’ve thought I’d end up with a degree! Without your support I wouldn’t have made it. Thanks to the library’s Off Campus service I’ve managed to complete my undergraduate degree, and have been accepted to do honours. I have now completed 2 major sequences … all distinctions and high distinctions, thanks in part to your help and the fantastic service you provide. Students in Correctional Facilities

27 I find the library an excellent place to study as I am distracted by other tasks at home. I use the library for group study sessions. If we are lucky enough to secure a study room with the large screen and whiteboard we accomplish quite a lot by sharing ideas and assisting each other. (Student: mature age, return to study) 26
