The Library


Help with your dissertation

You can book an appointment with your Librarian (details on the right) who can help you find resources including journal articles, statistics and more. You should also attend sessions provided by your Academic Librarian on research skills.

Remember if you are unsure about anything it is best to check with your dissertation supervisor!

Can I find copies of past dissertations in the Library?

We keep some printed dissertations and theses in the Library - but not for all subject areas. Dissertations are held within the normal book stock and theses in the High Demand Area at each campus.

You may also find it helpful to look at a similar subject, for example Childhood & Early Years and Playwork dissertations. You can find these on Discover:
