After numerous requests by postgraduate students for assistance on how to write a literature review, the library has decided to run an additional workshop entitled:

Finding sources for your literature review: an advanced guide for masters and doctoral students.

Date:   Thursday, 21 August 2014

Time:   17h00-19h00

RSVP:    cyrill.walters@uct.ac.za

Venue: Ulwazi Training Room, Knowledge Commons, Chancellor Oppenheimer Library.

This workshop will present different literature review designs and provide a structured and comprehensive approach to finding suitable literature sources.

Although general in its focus, the workshop will provide a systematic approach to finding sources for the literature review across disciplines which will save the researcher time and avoid missing important content.

 

The Savvy Researcher Series brings information professionals and university experts together with postgraduate students to explore topics related to research and academic success. The series aims to attract all Postgraduate students across disciplines.

Postgraduate students are exploring new methods of research, resulting in new forms of digital output, e.g., data sets, blogs, and wikis; the series aims to meet the evolving needs of postgraduates and enhance the continuum of scholarly communication from discovery to delivery through the provision of information resources, services and partnerships.

The Savvy Researcher seminars are held in the Ulwazi Training Room in the Chancellor Oppenheimer Library on Thursday afternoons from 15h00-16h30. (more…)
