In your studies you will be conducting research for a variety of assignments. There are commonly used sources of information such as textbooks, but there are other, more imaginative ways you could supplement these.

This session will explore how to undertake a literature search of primary and secondary sources to avoid receiving remarks on your assessed work such as 'Your list of sources is limited in scope' or 'Try to find more academically robust source material'. It will be particularly useful for students who will be writing a range of essay-type assignments including reflective statements. 

Book onto this workshop through CareerHub or visit the Student Services Hub in the Silberrad Student Centre (Colchester) or the Forum (Southend).
