Resources for Dissertations and Dissertation Week 16-20 March 2020 

Dissertation Week is about how the Library can support students to make the most of their 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 highlight the training, support and resources we offer to our undergraduate and taught postgraduate students undertaking their dissertations, as well as staff supervising dissertations. The week brings together digital resource suppliers and teams including Library Academic Support, Research Support, the Centre for Research Collections, the IAD and Digital Skills.  

Compiled resources are available on this page.
