Law: Dissertations & Research Papers: Welcome

Online support to assist with planning and conducting your library dissertation research

How to use this online guide

This guide will introduce you to the skills and techniques you can use for effective library research for your dissertations and research projects.

You can work through each section using the menu tabs above, or the Next button at the bottom of the page.

You do not need to work through the entire guide in one session.  You can dip in and out as you work through the different stages of your dissertation research.

There will be activities for you to complete as you go so that you can learn by doing and self test your learning.

This guide aims to ...

  • Build your confidence in planning and conducting your research to support your dissertation
  • Highlight help and support available to you as you conduct your research

A dissertation workbook is available for download.  You can use this to make notes as you progress through the tutorial and plan your library research strategy for your dissertation, project or research proposal.

Slides from the live session with Lee are also available.
