Sharpening your study skills

Posted on 26 September 2017

The Library and IT have a range of Skills Guides to help you develop your digital and information searching skills.

The Skills Guides are a mixture of videos, interactive tutorials, workshops and links to specific information to help you maximise your study time.

The materials have been organised into five themes:

  • Find and research
  • Organise and analyse
  • Create and communicate
  • Being critical 
  • Group work and collaboration

The guides cover a wide range of topics - from where and how to find the information you need and how to manage your references to tips to improve your academic writing and how to keep yourself safe online.

Digital Wednesdays

The Library and IT are also running Digital Wednesday training sessions every Wednesday afternoon during term time. The first is a drop-in session to help you get started with the Google tools available at York.
