What is a Literature Review? - Savvy Researcher Series
Savvy Researcher Workshop Series
Topic: What is a Literature Review?
Venue: Hlanganani Junction in the (Main) Chancellor Oppenheimer Library - Upper Campus
Writing a review of the relevant literature is a key component of many kinds of research texts. In this interactive workshop, we will demonstrate a number of strategies that model a viable approach to the complex literature review (LR) task.
This session will provide an overview of the literature review and its place in a research project, thesis or dissertation, and demonstrate some strategies and resources for finding the information you need using UCT Libraries. Although the LR can be a daunting task, especially in heavily-researched areas, there is a silver lining; students typically emerge from the process as experts in their chosen fields of specialization.
