Find Information for your Dissertation (workshop links)

We recently held a skills workshop called ‘Find Information for your Dissertation‘. We’ve collated some links we mentione din the workshop along with the powerpoint we used for those who were unable to attend.

Help using Library Search Tools:

Help using Google/Google Scholar:

How to find out about Conferences/Conference proceedings:

  • You can search for Conferences and proceedings on Zetoc
  • Conference Alerts – search for conferences in your subject. You will usually be linked to the conferences official website which may include details of proceedings, or even provide papers after the event for free. Sometimes conference papers are published in a journal volume or in a book so you may try a combination of Google Scholar, Discover and the Library Catalogue.

Help using subject databases:

  • Find out which databases are best for you on your subject pages
  • Use the help sections within databases for guides & videos

Using other libraries:

If a journal article or book you require is not available with Sunderland Subscriptions, or freely online you can check other libraries.
