Dissertation Festival

Dissertation Festival offers a series of online events exploring how the Library can support you to make the most of the dissertation experience: from exploring what library resources are available to support a research question, to managing bibliographic and research data. 

This page brings together information on the current Dissertation Festival programme with resources from a range of teams, including Library Academic Support, Research Support, the Centre for Research Collections, the IAD and Digital Skills.

You can explore the different topics using the left-hand navigation.

Our DissertationFestival has finished for another semester. Thank you to all our presenters & moderators and to all the students who attended, we hope it was helpful. The recordings are included below and there is still time to pick up the virtual Festival bag (and try the Pomodoro Technique).
