Writing a good assignment requires many different skills. Maybe you’re starting out and struggling to find relevant information, stuck with writer’s block and not sure how to structure your essay or nearing the end and having difficulty with referencing. Take a look at the following workshops and resources that may help.

Searching for information

Book for the workshop, Academic articles for your assignment: Where to start.

Look at the subject guides to identify what databases and journals are relevant to your topic. Subject guides often provide links to other useful resources as well. Most importantly subject guides will give you the contact details for your Subject Librarian. If you get stuck you can email them for suggestions.

Reading and writing

We have workshops to help develop your reading and writing skills:

There’s online help with writing essays, case studies, lab reports, posters and presentations on the Writing and presenting page.

Referencing

If you’re getting started with referencing attend a Referencing: The basics workshop or take a look at the online resource.

If you want a quick reminder about where to put full stops and dates in your references try Quickcite.

    What about report writing?

      Hi Dory,

      The Writing and presenting page has resources specifically for lab reports and technical report writing for the sciences. If you use the Search everything option you can find books and articles about report writing in many other fields, e.g. business, social sciences.

      Kind regards,

      Hi Jess,

      Libraries and Learning Services don’t offer any workshops specifically on writing for blogs. The workshops on writing that are offered by Libraries and Learning Services focus on academic writing, essay writing and writing in English.
