Dissertation Chats

Calling all dissertation students…

Do you need a little bit of help finding useful resources? Struggling to use library databases and online journals? Need a bit of a Referencing refresher? Or just want to chat to someone about your research topic?

Then our Dissertation Chat sessions are for you! Why not pop-in for a cuppa and a chat with your Academic Service Librarians?
