This session looks in detail at what makes a good literature review and how to go about writing one. To do a good literature review involves strategy and planning from the beginning of the dissertation to the end. The use of library resources and services is integral to this process from the start. The various aspects of the literature search are considered and the library’s associated role; where to search for resources, how to evaluate and select relevant resources, how to keep accurate information and use online tools to save time and effort, and where to go for help. Students will leave this session knowing how to get the most from the Library as part of producing a suitable doctoral standard review of all relevant sources in the thesis subject area

Dr Kelvin Street is a Learning and Teaching Librarian in Business and Technology at the OU.
