Brain Food: Writing the Literature Review
In this workshop session, we focus on one of the most difficult parts to write, the Literature Review.
- Gathering and Reading Literature: A good thesis demands a good literature review, and that means finding and critically analyzing the key literature in your field. In this session, learn some methods for finding and evaluating the literature in order to select relevant and authoritative sources. We'll also be discussing the use of Zotero for citation management.
- Writing the Literature Review: Your literature review is a key component of your thesis or dissertation. This session will discuss how to connect the literature review to your argument, build the structure for your review, and avoid some of the common traps when writing.
Participants will have the opportunity to obtain a Graduate Writing and Research Skills Letter of Recognition in acknowledgement of their efforts to expand their knowledge and skills. You are also welcome to visit the Library Events page to register and attend the other Brain Food workshops:
