Academic Practice Workshop-Webinars 2021/22

We are again running our popular online academic practice workshops to help you with your studies. They'll take you from fundamental library skills onto producing critical writing. For details of the workshops, and to book, visit our academic skills pages, or go straight to MetHub to book. Our workshops on MetHub are listed under 'General workshop/lecture' or can be searched under 'Events' by typing 'Library workshop'. If you can't manage a workshop just now, more workshops will be added throughout the academic year!
