Study Skills Books Display

Our Study Skills Books display in Owen library is so popular that we’re constantly replacing the books. One of the most popular is ‘How to use reading in your essays’ by Jeanne Godfrey. Full of useful tips and techniques to help with assignment writing, it contains advice about how to compare different points of view and highlights ways of checking and correcting your work. Copies can be found on the shelf at 808.042 GOD. Bryan Greetham’s ‘How to write better essays’ , located on the shelves at 808.042 GRE, is also proving popular and describes how to develop paragraphs and conclusions.

The wide range of study skills books, found in all our libraries, are easy to find on the catalogue. For example, if you need help with your dissertation writing, typing the word ‘dissertation’ into the catalogue produces lots of resources, such as ‘Your undergraduate dissertation: the essential guide for success’, by Nicholas Walliman, which you’ll find on the shelves at 808.066378/WAL in our Townhill library. Additionally, many of the study skills books are also available as ebooks, which can be accessed on or off-campus.  

Want to find out more? Just ask at the counter in any of our libraries and we’ll be happy to help. And if you’re passing by Owen Library, come in and see our display for yourself!
