Liz Dore presents this workshop to show you how to find relevant papers through database searches. The workshop also shows you how to think about your topic, choose your sources, build and save your searches.
When you have to find information for an assignment, it is really important that you know where to look and how to know that the information you are finding is the right scholarly content that your lecturers expect you to reference in your assignments.
This short workshop with the library will show you the best sources for your assignments and show you how to quickly find what you need for an assignment or project.
This overview was presented in Weeks 1 and 2 of Semester 1 to show students how to use the library online and in person this semester. The most recent updates about access and all library services is available on www.ul.ie/library
