Advanced Skills: Developing a Research Strategy

Year of Study
11 October 2022
13:00 - 14:00



Being able to undertake effective literature searches is an important part of your dissertation or final year project. Knowing the strategies and tools with which to perform thorough searches to identify existing research and information about your chosen topic, allows you to connect your work to wider scholarly knowledge, demonstrate your understanding and put any research you have done in a wider context.

In this 1 hour session we will look at developing a search strategy, the resources available to you at the Library to search the literature and managing your search results. After this session participants will be able to:

  • Understand how to develop effective strategies for literature searching
  • Identify relevant databases and resources for searching
  • Have an understanding of reference management options

Please note: This session will be delivered online via Collaborate. The link to join the event will be sent in a separate email.

Facilitated by Caroline Stirling, Academic Support Librarian
