Your library. Your assignment.

It's Day 3 of Library Ireland Week; today we are looking at how your library can help you with assignments and projects.

Finding scholarly information
Sometimes your lecturer may give you a list of books to use... you can search the library catalogue

Sometimes you need to search for information without a book list... you can search the library databases

Referencing the information you use in your assignments
When you use information from a book, journal, website etc. in your assignment, you need to reference it to acknowledge that it came from a different writer.  Read more about Referencing using the Harvard Referencing System or Referencing using the IEEE Referencing System here.

You can use RefWorks: an online tool that helps you to gather your references and create your reference lists.

If you have any questions about how to find scholarly information for your assignment, or how to reference the information you use in your assignment, let us know:
