For the first time at the University of Edinburgh Library we are planning to hold a Dissertation Week in November 11-15 2019. This week is all about how the Library can support the student dissertation experience : from exploring what library resources are available to support a research question, to managing the bibliographic and research data students find. During the week a series of events will highlight the training, support and resources we offer to our undergraduate and taught postgraduate students undertaking their dissertations, as well as staff supervising dissertations.
Dissertation Fair : Thursday 14 November
At the heart of the week will be a Dissertations Fair event on Thursday 14th November, held at the Main Library. We’ll be inviting academic staff supporting student dissertations to a preview of the fair, which will host stalls from digital resource suppliers alongside other stalls run by Library teams including Library Academic Support, Research Support and the Centre for Research Collections. Running alongside will be a programme of presentation sessions on library services and digital resources. In the afternoon, the event will be open to undergraduate and postgraduate students to attend.
