Information Skills workshops for PhD researchers now open for booking

The Library is here to help all postgraduate researchers as they begin, or continue their in-depth research with a short series of Information Skills workshops designed to their needs. With so much academic literature available through the University of Aberdeen, these workshops will give you the confidence and skills to locate and manage the materials you need.

The workshops will take place between the dates: 30th of October – 15th of November and will help you understand the resources available to you as researchers here at the University of Aberdeen, and how to get the best out of them.

There are three workshops on offer, each lasting two hours: 

  • Part 1: Getting started
  • Part 2: Using databases
  • Part 3: Managing your references using RefWorks

Across the three workshops, we will look at: 

  • Planning your search
  • Looking for books: using Primo and e-book collections
  • Databases of academic literature
  • Getting the best out of Google
  • Managing your references with RefWorks
  • Formatting Word documents with in-text citations and bibliographies

Important note: 

The workshop focusing on the management of references (Part 3) 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. 

To find out more and to book onto the different workshops please visit: www.abdn.ac.uk/coursebooking and look for Library Information Skills classes.
