In this workshop, research students will develop the broad set of skills needed to conduct an effective literature review. This includes the ability to find the information they need and take an evidence-based approach to decision making.
Research students will learn how to:
- identify places to search for academic literature
- have a kit bag of strategies for searching the literature
- develop a strategy to organise and capture what they find (Endnote is one way to do this).
Research students new to the literature review process can refer to the Library Guide The Literature Review as a starting point.
Tool to support a literature review
If you are conducting a literature review, a reference management tool such as Endnote is highly recommended. All on-shore staff and students can download the EndNote software to their home computers via MyVU. Refer to the Library Guide Endnote for information about downloading Endnote.
For help with using Endnote, attend an Endnote training workshop run by the Library:
- Endnote Beginners
- Endnote Advanced
- Endnote for Macs
Bookings for Endnote workshops are available via the Researcher Development Calendar.
