Researchers are welcome to attend for help with academic writing, literature searching and referencing. This could range from assistance with using the library catalogue and RefWorks to writing a literature review, checking how critical your writing is, chapter planning, or just looking at a section of your writing.

 If you're not based on campus or you're unable to see us for One-to-One support you can easily contact us online. You can either book an appointment via our online chat service ASSIST or Skype (our user name is wlv_skills), email us or ask us a question via Facebook or Twitter.
