From October 2017 the Library will discontinue its programme of open information skills workshops, offering instead a growing suite of online courses and materials to help students develop their academic and information skills.
For new students:
- Find everything you need to know about the library on our Start your journey pages.
- The Information Trails induction package is available on School Blackboard sites and the UEA Software and Support site.
- The Digital Voyager course in digital literacies runs twice yearly and is integrated with the UEA Award and is open and relevant to all students
Other online materials:
Don't forget that Academic Librarians offer subject-tailored sessions throughout the academic year as part of your course.
The Learning Enhancement Team also offer workshops on Academic Skills, Dissertations, and Revision and Exams.
These sessions are specifically designed for PhD students. Please book a place on the relevant session through your Faculty's PPD programme.
Getting organised: from doing research to communicating your findings
A hands-on, reflective workshop that invites you to step back from the day-to-day research process and consider where you've got to and where you're going next.
Referencing without tears
A hands-on taster session of three types of referencing software that can help save you time and let you focus on your research. This session is a more in-depth exploration of the software and is specially tailored for PhD students. It includes an introduction to EndNote.
Digital tools for your research
A fast-paced tour of useful, freely available apps and software that can help with various aspects of the research process (mostly free!).
