Are you writing a dissertation this year? Do you want to find out more about the library resources available to support your dissertation?
From the 26th October to the 6th November 2020 we have a fortnight of online events which will highlight what the Library can do for you to help you succeed with your dissertation.
One of the events we’re holding is a Dissertation Fair which showcases library resources and services which support CAHSS students specifically on Thursday 29 October. You can:
- Make your dissertation something special : find out about the fantastic collections
available at the Centre for Research Collections
- Discover the full range of digital resources that you can access via the University
- Take the first steps to learn new skills in managing your bibliographic references and your research data
For details of how to book this or any of our other events please visit the Dissertation Festival Subject Guide: https://edinburgh-uk.libguides.com/dissertation
Not available to attend live sessions, or feel that your dissertation is still too far away to plan for? Don’t worry! Most live sessions will be recorded and made available after the Dissertation Festival to be used asynchronously at a time that suits you. The Subject Guide will be updated after the events have taken place with more information.
Learn something new or simply refresh your memory!
