  • Breakfast Bites – Using Images in your Assignments

    Do you use images, diagrams, graphs and charts in your assignments? Did you know that you must check if you have permission to re-use images you find online or in books and journals? You also need to make sure images, diagrams, graphs and charts are referenced correctly when you use them in your own work. Come along to our Breakfast Bites session on Tuesday 20th February to find out more. The session is open to all staff and students. No need to book, just come along!

    Breakfast Bites workshops are held once a week in Bay Library’s PC Room 2 from 8.15am until 8.50am.

    There is more information about using images on our Copyright Library Guide. You can also book an appointment with one of your librarians by emailing engineeringlib@swansea.ac.uk or using the Book a Librarian calendar on our Library Guide.

  • Referencing guides

    The University Learning and Teaching Committee recently approved 4 referencing styles for use by undergraduates at Swansea. Library staff have produced guides to these which are avaible for students in their Library support module in Blackboard. The styles are APA (an author date style), Vancouver (numbered), MHRA (footnotes) and Oscola (a legal style).

    We will be doing a drop in session on referencing in the Vancouver style on Friday 9th Nov 12-1 in Training room 1 in the library. If your students need help with referencing contact us (scieng@swansea.ac.uk) to arrange a training session or suggest that they contact their subject team for individual help.
