Your dissertation – you can do it!!

There are several steps to producing a great dissertation, from finding information and organising your research, to developing your academic writing skills. It can sometimes seem a bit daunting when you’re just starting out on your dissertation, especially if you’re learning at a distance. Worry not! Library staff are here to help you.

Skills for Learning are running a themed dissertation week this week. There is loads of guidance on their website. If the subject you’re studying means you need to produce a dissertation based on a product, there is help available, whilst their Dissertation IT Kit provides a really useful guide on how to produce a great looking document that avoids any potential formatting errors.

The Library website includes information about finding past dissertations in the Library or obtaining Interlibrary Loans if you need to read something as part of your literature review that isn’t available in the Library.

Or you could use the Beckett Books Extra scheme to request a book that you think should be in stock – just click Recommend on the web page.

Discover Library resources

Searching Discover gives you access to thousands of resources for whatever topic you pick, or you can use the Subject Guides to point you in the right direction. These are created by your Academic Librarian who has expert knowledge of all the journals, databases and other material available to you. You can contact your Academic Librarian for one-to-one support in finding resources for your dissertation or project. And, of course, you can always contact the Library 24/7 and we’ll do our best to help.

If you have any queries, please do contact Offsite or the Library for additional support 24/7. We’d love to hear from you!
