Each is presented via quality video clips, together with activities to complete, advice on practical issues and areas for further discussion.

Reference Management

If you are looking for a better way to gather, organise and store references that you have collected, for example books, journal articles and reports, and you would like to create citations and bibliographies with ease, then take a look at RefWorks.

The library maintains a subscription to this web-based reference management software as we believe it will help you work more efficiently, saving you time formatting bibliographies.
