Following on from yesterday's post, if you're about to embark on writing your dissertation, then you're probably at the stage of narrowing down your ideas to focus on the subject which you're going to look at for the next few months.

One of the most common comments which is heard at this time of year is, "I'd like to research this topic, but I'm not sure that there's enough information available." While your tutor will be the person to speak to with regards to selecting your final title, I can assure you that it's incredibly rare for anyone to pick a topic which cannot be studied due to a lack of relevant information or research.

If you're struggling at this stage to find useful information for your selected subject, feel free to get in touch with me and I'll try to suggest some good resources which will help you at this early stage. Or you could come to one of the research workshops which the subject librarians will be putting on around the College this semester - venues and times will go up on noticeboards in the next few days. And good luck to all of you!
