We recently had some franchise students vist the library. Franchise students are ones that, although their final qualification is awarded by Sheffield Hallam, have their teaching undertaken by one of the Further Education Colleges in the area. The ones I saw were a collection from Sheffield College, studying Tourism. The difficulties arise when I have to show them what resources are available electronically as they normally don't have access to our electronic databases. Instead, we covered a number of online resources including Intute and Google Scholar. I managed to pull together a delicious page for them and put the presentation on slideshare.
