Just because you have been here for a year or two already, there is always a way to develop your information skills. Watch our tips and guidance for your next stage of study.

Over the time your study at Newman you will be asked and expected to read and use a range of resources. This will depend on your course, level of study, and a particular subject or modules topic. Find out about how and when to use journals, databases, Google and preparing for your dissertation in this series of videos.
Do people keep talking about Harvard referencing but you don't know where to start. This is the workshop for you, along with our referencing guide which also takes you through everything you need to know.
We want you to get the most out of the Library’s resources and services, so we provide live tutorials and workshops for students throughout the year:
You can book a one-to-one support tutorial with an Academic Support Librarian to get help using the Library, working on your assignment, advice on searching databases or on how to reference – book a slot here.
You can book a tutorial any time throughout the year.
Our live workshops usually start towards the middle of the first semester (end of October). Once the dates are released you will be able to check the details of forthcoming sessions and sign up for them through our online booking system. Our friendly workshops and clinics cover topics such as:
Referencing - this will be an introduction to the key concepts of referencing and you will have a chance to ask questions
Finding information for assignments - this will help you find academic-standard information: from books to journals and websites
Using the virtual library - this will show you how to find and use online library resources including books and journals
Understanding legal sources - this is a session for non-law students who need to understand UK legislation and case law
