Information skills workshops for PhD students

The Library is here to help all postgraduate researchers with a series of information skills workshops which will take place in The Sir Duncan Rice Library on the 06th, 07th, 08th and 9th of March.

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

  • Part 1: Getting started
  • Part 2: Using databases, Copyright
  • Part 3: Academic Integrity, Referencing
  • Part 4: Managing references using ProQuest RefWorks

Across the four workshops we will look at: how to use Google for support materials, planning a search, finding books in Primo and e-book collections, using databases of academic literature and managing references with ProQuest RefWorks.

We will also cover how to use resources fairly and legally and provide an overview of Academic Integrity and discuss plagiarism, collusion and contract cheating.
