Dissertations (and Dissertation Festival)


Dissertation Week is now a Dissertation Festival held online over two weeks. Hold the dates 26 Oct - 06 Nov. More details coming soon.


Resources for Dissertations and Dissertation Week 

Dissertation Week offered a series of events in Nov 2019 and Mar 2020 exploring 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. 

This 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.
