Science - BioPhy Library - Animal, Plant and Environmental Sciences: Training and Development

This LibGuide will provide literature in the search of wide ranging information in the broad fields of Animal, Plant and Environmental Sciences.


The library's Information Literacy training programme is designed to provide support to students and staff undertaking research. Courses follow the research cycle and should help you identify, plan, gather, evaluate and manage research information.
Workshops include demonstration of subject specific sources: databases, e-books, e-journals, theses, and provides tips on effective literature searching, citing and referencing options.

Please contact your librarian to arrange focused Information literacy workshops for Postgraduate students.

Citation of Datasets

Data requires citations for the same reasons journal articles and other types of publications require citations: to acknowledge the original author/producer and to help other researchers find the resource.
