The Library is here to help all postgraduate researchers as they begin, or continue their in-depth research, with a series of Information Skills workshops on the 11th, 12th and 13th of June. Our aim is to help you understand the resources available to you here at the University of Aberdeen and how to get the best out of them.
June 11 - Part I: Getting started
June 12 - Part II: Using databases
June 13 - Part III: Managing your references using RefWorks*
Across the three workshops we will cover the following topics:
- planning your search
- looking for books:using Primo and e-books
- 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 III) is not suitable for research postgraduates in the School of Law, as RefWorks does not support the OSCOLA referencing style, which is required for legal theses.
