Manchester Metropolitan University Library's InfoSkills run workshops to help your studies throughout the year. Workshops are 60 minutes, unless otherwise stated. You can find more information on the workshops below.
Not only does Endnote software allow you store your references as you are searching resources for information, but it can also take the pain out of referencing by automatically inserting citations and references into your Word document as you write your assignments, so you don’t have to worry about where your full stops and commas go. Endnote covers a number of referencing styles for you to explore, however for our workshop, we will focus on the MMU Harvard style available within Endnote.
Make sorting out your references easier with this introduction to the MMU's Harvard style. We'll show you how to reference the most common type of material as well as giving you guidance on tackling those trickier references you discover for your work.
Struggling to find relevant academic information for your assignments? Google can be a useful starting point but it can be hard to find good quality academic writing using a general search engine. This hands on workshop will show you how to use Library Search to get straight to the research you need.
Time to crack on with your research project or dissertation and don’t know where to start? This hands on session will help you to plan your searches and use time saving search techniques to find the most relevant academic sources. Learn how to use subject specific databases to find high quality academic journals and research papers.
Cited reference searching is a technique that will help you locate additional articles for your research. Previously published articles relevant to your research appear in the list of references at the end of a journal article. A cited reference search, however, brings you forward in time to identify more recent articles which cite the original article that you located. This hands-on workshop will take you through the process of carrying out a cited reference search on appropriate databases.
Showing a potential employer that you really understand them and their sector is an impressive way to stand out in the recruitment process. This practical session shows you how to use the variety of resources available at MMU to research your potential employer and the market in which they operate.
