Haddon Library

Study skills sessions

The Haddon Library offers a wide-range of classes throughout the year aimed at enhancing knowledge of crucial research skills and strategies.

Many of these sessions are integrated into course timetables and seminar series but we are always happy to repeat sessions for small groups upon request.

If you are want to book a bespoke 1-2-1 chat with our Librarian, check out their regular bookable office hour on Thursday mornings or email us directly to arrange something. 

Examples of topics we offer include:

  • Literature Searching for Dissertations
  • Strategic Academic Reading and Note Making 
  • Using Zotero and other Reference Managers 
  • How to Write When You Do Not Want to Write 
  • Academic Integrity, Referencing and Plagiarism
  • Note Making for Dissertations
  • Slow Reading workshops 
  • Shut Up and Write (3-hour writing sessions)

Our sessions are aimed at students on the HSPS Tripos with a specific focus on the Departments of Archaeology and Social Anthropology.

Students from other departments are welcome to attend any open sessions that are not otherwise timetabled for a specific cohort, especially if you are borrowing a paper with us as part of your wider studies.
