Grey literature is material which is not formally or commercially published. It includes, but it not limited to, reports, conference papers, theses and working papers. Our new guide explains how and where to find it and gives links to lots of useful resources.
Working on a systematic review? Why not check out our new library guide to systematic reviews. It covers all the necessary steps and includes links to lots of useful resources.
To kick off the new semester we have updated our programme of library classes and drop-ins which you can view and sign up for here: http://libguides.rgu.ac.uk/classes
As well as our regular classes on Finding Information, RefWorks and Harvard Referencing we have introduced a couple of new Bring Your Questions sessions where you can come along with specific questions related to either Harvard Referencing, RefWorks or finding information for your dissertation. These new sessions will take place in Project Pod Alpha on the ground floor of the Georgina Scott Sutherland Learning Centre.
Please note that Ask the Library Drop-In sessions will now take place in the main library in the Sir Ian Wood Building.
To see what we have on offer over the coming weeks and to book yourself in to a class, please check the timetable, click on the class you would like to attend and fill in the form. We look forward to seeing you there!
Would like advice on finding resources for your assignments? Maybe you’re stuck with referencing (Harvard, Vancouver, using RefWorks) or just want to brush up on your skills? We are here to help!
Between 9th January to 27th January, our “Ask the Library” Drop-In sessions are taking place Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm in the main library.
So just pop over to the Library and we will be happy to have a chat. You don’t need an appointment, just come along!
Throughout the semester the library runs regular drop-in sessions where you can just call in, no need to book, and ask any library queries, such as how to develop searching skills, access resources (e.g. journal articles), reference or get dissertation help.
These drop-in sessions take place in IT Lab 321 in the Georgina Scott Sutherland Learning Centre and this week the drop in sessions are:
- Monday 21st November 09.00-11.00 and 13.00-16.00
- Tuesday 22nd November 10.00-12.00 and 14.00-16.00
