Getting Started

Note: If you are doing your research from home, you can access licensed Library resources including ebooks, journals, indexes & databases, and other resources using EZproxy. All you need is a valid Campus-Wide Login (CWL) or UBC Library Card.

Graduate Student Resources in the Library

The number of library workshops for graduate students has expanded with the Koerner Library Research Commons. For more information about the Research Commons and a list of upcoming workshops, have a look at the following links. If you have any ideas for other workshops, please let me know.

·  Research Commons

The UBC Research Commons offers workshops throughout each term as well as individual consultation appointments, via the link under "Consultations" on the main Research Commons page. The workshop on Tips and Tricks for Formatting Your Thesis covers the basic resources that are available to help you write your thesis/dissertation, including a thesis template.

Citing Your Sources

I recommend that you invest some time in learning to use one of the online citation management tools. Have a look at our How To Cite guide for a description of some of the more popular tools.

The UBC Research Commons offers workshops throughout each term on three of the most popular citation management tools: RefWorks, Mendeley, and Zotero. To view upcoming workshops and to register for a session, visit the Library Workshops and Events Calendar and search for citation management.
