In our previous post we told you about the upcoming online courses organised by our colleagues in IT in support of PGT students formatting and writing their dissertations using Word. There are still places available – please book a place by visiting abdn.ac.uk/coursebooking and selecting category ‘IT Services Training and Documentation Team’.
In this post we would like to draw your attention to the support provided by the Library and Student Learning Service.
We have prepared a series of short recordings presenting techniques, tips and resources to help you find academic scholarly books and journal articles and reliable support materials. The issues of plagiarism and correct referencing are also covered as well as instruction on reference management software RefWorks.
Our colleagues in the Student Learning Service have also prepared the following recordings:
– ‘Planning and writing a dissertation’
– ‘Writing a Literature Review’
These useful materials can be found on our wiki at:
