The Library is holding a Dissertation and Thesis Festival from 11 – 15 March 2024, aiming to support students to use library resources for dissertation and thesis success.  

To create the programme, we’ve collaborated with Digital Skills, IAD, Library Research Support and the Centre for Research Collections, as well as external publishers and other libraries including the NLS.  

Key themes for sessions in this year’s Festival include:

  • Using Film in Research
  • Getting started with NVivo 
  • Expert searches for systematic reviews 
  • Discover Overton : the world’s largest searchable index of policy documents
  • AI tools for literature searching: Opportunities, limitations, and responsible use 

Most sessions will be delivered online and will also be recorded, making them accessible to online only students and students unable to attend live sessions due to study or work commitments. 

In addition Festival sessions are complemented by modules in the LibSmart online course which can be undertaken at any time to build student knowledge and skills in library-based research.
