Skills Workshops

Would you like to know how to find excellent information sources: books, journal articles and other specialist resources for your assignments? Or just how to make good use of our excellent library resources? Or how to reference your sources properly in your essays (and make sure you don’t lose those marks).

As well as individual booked appointments available throughout the year, your Academic Support Librarians offer a range of information skills workshops to help students find and reference quality information for assignments, dissertations and projects.

These sessions can take place as part of your course, or as part of our self-bookable Information Skills for Success workshop programme.

The Information Skills for Success workshops cover:

  • essential information on using library resources
  • an introduction to referencing
  • referencing problems (drop-in)
  • finding resources for assignments
  • Information Skills to get the best degree

The latter two sessions are specific to academic subjects (e.g. Law, Nursing, Psychology, Music Technology) and will be conducted by your own Academic Support Librarian.

Students can obtain further details and book onto these sessions using the calendar below. Just click on the session you want to attend and register online. There is also information regarding these workshops on all subject guides. Or contact your Academic Support Librarian directly.
