Find it! Use it! Reference it! - The S&E Workshops
The Library is offering a series of workshops to taught Science and Engineering students at Queen Mary University of London. These hands-on workshops will take place in the Training Room in the Mile End Library on Wednesday afternoons.
The research skills addressed in the workshops are covered during your embedded sessions with your Faculty Liaison Librarian of Science and Engineering. However, this is your chance to get a deeper understanding and review your previously acquired knowledge.
