Skills audit—TOAST

An information skills audit for HDR students, delivered via the Tool for Online Assessment of Skills and Training (TOAST), will help you decide which training sessions to attend. Following completion of the audit, you receive a score and a message suggesting a course of action, for instance a particular training course that will assist in closing your skill gap.


To access TOAST log in using your ANU ID and password.

In-curriculum tailored
training programs

The University Library and Information Literacy Program are able to organise tailored session(s) for your group. Sessions range from IT (Word, Excel, Presentation techniques using PowerPoint, SPSS, Managing your research data, and Alliance) to Library Catalogue and Library Databases or Web Searching.


Email the Information Literacy Program if you are interested in organising a tailored session for your group. Training is generally conducted in-curriculum (course embedded). Please contact your lecturer or supervisor first to find out if your course has a specific lecture or tutorial dedicated to any of these skills.


A one-to-one session with a librarian can also be arranged when assistance is required. Help can be provided in the use of the Library's resources, for developing an effective search strategy, using EndNote reference manager and others.
