Library skills

I completed the ECS library skills for research postgrads this morning. It was a session of just over an hour long, to inform us about the different library services we can use, and the electronic subscriptions the university holds.

Although the session mostly covered material we'd previous been taught, the main benefit was being asked to perform a literature survey using the sources they recommend. Even though the sites and databases were again nothing new, the exercise of investigating the literature without being distracted by reading specific papers was really helpful. I'm going to conduct a similar, but more in-depth search this afternoon.
