Make a space in your diary for Skillspace!


Searching for journal articles can be a frustrating experience. There’s so much research to wade through, so many places to search…how do you find that magical research paper that unlocks the door and helps you shape your research, taking it to the next level?

Our team of Academic Services Librarians are here to guide you through search engines and online databases, supporting you in developing the skills you need to find those key papers. Ensuring you not only succeed in your studies, but also ensure you have key digital skills to take into an increasingly digitised workplace.

Covering everything from understanding how to use LibrarySearch effectively to introducing you to specialised resources such as Ebsco and from how to use Google Scholar to leveraging Artificial Intelligence, there’s a wide variety of online sessions that can support you in your studies. There's a workshop for everyone, whether you are a postgraduate or an undergraduate, no matter what course you are taking.

Skillspace isn't just a workshop series—it's your go-to toolkit for being an efficient and effective researcher. Learn to seek out high-quality sources in a variety of formats and deliver impactful research. After attending a Skillspace workshop, you'll find that you have significantly improved your skills, increasing the efficiency of your literature searching and increasing your confidence in conducting research.
