Information Seeking Guide for Students of Nursing

Information seeking workshops

You can ask for one-to-one guidance performed by our information specialists. We will help you to find material - published in paper format or online - and to evaluate their applicability for your thesis. We will show you how to use online search engines and portals. Your skills in information literacy will be refreshed as well.

The guidance sessions are designed on your own wishes and needs. Usually the guidance session takes about an hour.

When taking contact, please provide the subject of your thesis and your other possible expectations on the guidance session.

Help with reference management / Mendeley

Mendeley is a reference management system that allows you to manage the source references of the thesis or other written work.

You can transfer references from different databases, such as Centria-Finna and international databases, with one click. References
will remain in your account for as long as you need them. You can move the references into the text you have written.

For Mendeley use, you can find instructions in Centria's Mendeley guide.
