This week (9th-13th Feb) we have a series of lunchtime and afternoon sessions designed to help students who are about to start their dissertations, although anyone can attend, so it doesn’t matter whether you’re a first year undergraduate student or a postgraduate. There’s no need to sign up in advance; just come along to the session you’re interested in.
Each session is 45 minutes long but packed with content. They are designed and run by subject librarians. See the timetable below:
