Webinars on Finding Research, Citing and Referencing, EndNote and more …

Skills Hub webinars will help you improve the skills you need to succeed in your courses and assignments at Heriot-Watt.


Topics for this semester include:

  • Finding Research – an introductory webinar on how to find academic research, suitable for students who are new to university research, or who would like a refresher.
  • Literature Searching – more advanced webinars aimed at students who are familiar with the basics of how to search, but want to learn more. These are aimed at students in the final years of their undergraduate degree or taught postgraduates.
  • EndNote X9 reference management software. EndNote X9 is very useful if you are working on a literature review or a project with a lot of references.
  • Citing and Referencing, with sessions on Harvard and IEEE (check your assignment guidelines to find out which style you should use)
  • And many more

Many of our September webinars were fully booked, but there are spaces available in October and November. Book your place at https://hw.ac.libcal.com/calendar/skillshub/

We’re also putting content online so that you can develop these skills independently, via the Skills Hub website at https://isguides.hw.ac.uk/skillshub . Topics already online include Harvard Citing and Referencing, IEEE Citing and Referencing and Finding Research for Assignments. We’ll be adding more to these pages throughout the semester.
