As you undertake your PhD it is important that you feel confident that you are locating and managing all the literature and information you require to achieve your research aims. For researchers like yourself the University’s Library Service is here to support you.
We will be running a short series of Information Skills Workshops beginning at the end of January 2016 which will help you understand the library resources available to you as researchers here at the University of Aberdeen, and how to get the best out of them. The three workshops on offer are:
- Literature searching – Part 1: Getting started
- Literature searching – Part 2: Using databases
- Literature searching – Part 3: Managing your references using RefWorks
There are also Induction Sessions available for those new to the University of Aberdeen who wish to learn about how the library service operates here. These sessions will include a talk and a tour, with the opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about what the library can do to help you with your research.
To find out more and to book Workshops or an Induction Session visit www.abdn.ac.uk/coursebooking and look for Information Skills classes.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The sessions focusing on the management of references is not suitable for research postgraduates in the School of Law, as the software used does not support the OSCOLA referencing style required for legal theses.
