Writing your literature review

Wednesday, July 08, 2020 at 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Virtual Event

Are you writing a literature review for a thesis or an article? Need to find background information and go deep into the literature to find out what has been done before? Join us for this virtual workshop to get more information about using resources from the MIT Libraries and techniques for identifying places to look for articles, conference proceedings, patents, and more; tips on keeping track of what you've found; and ways to search for related works, highly cited works, and other tricks, as well as an overview of the structure and role of the literature review in the research process.

Don't be surprised late in your writing process by a relevant paper that you didn't find -- work on your literature review today! Any discipline is welcome, with a focus on science and engineering.

This workshop will be conducted virtually over Zoom; registrants will get the Zoom link.

Note: This workshop will be held twice, but the content will be the same.
