Find it Fast! Information Skills Workshops 



The Find it Fast! workshops are designed to help undergraduate and taught postgraduate students identify and use the vast range of information resources available at the University of Aberdeen. These workshops cover the search process from beginning to end, demonstrating the importance of good information seeking and information management skills, while focusing on particular resources to help find relevant and appropriate materials. 


As not everyone is able to attend the sessions in person this site contains all the materials related to the workshops, including slides from the presentations, the accompanying worksheets, and other relevant support documents.


The Taught Postgraduates section presents content from the Refresher programme of Library, IT and Student Learning Service (SLS) workshops which run in May and June each year. This programme concentrates on skills, techniques and tips to support the research and writing of dissertations and final projects.


The Postgraduate Researchers tab provides workshop materials to support new PhD students. These workshops run four times across the academic year (November, February, April and June) with materials from the most recently offered workshop available here.


Relevant to all is the section on the Ethical Use of Information containing useful information on how to avoid plagiarism.


The Further Information section contains links and support materials to help you make best use of the many resources available from the Library.


If you require any further guidance please do contact library staff, either in person at one of our libraries, or via email. Contact details for your  subject specialist Information Consultant are also available.
