Literature Review and Building Bibliographies

In this session we will use a current research theme to illustrate how to conduct a successful review of the literature. We will discuss the information search process, and how to identify key publications and authors, movements and networks by using a range of database and web search tools. We will introduce various ways of organising a bibliography and provide some pointers to reading and analysing the literature and writing the review.

This session is part of our Research Support services. For guides, workshops and more information, go to our Research Support page.
