Library Training (Introduction to Academic Standards)
With information available in many formats and quality, it is very important to have skills that exploit the wide range of resources to retrieve, manage, and collect scholarly findings. The Library Training module aims to help MBA students to develop strategies and information skills to write assignments, projects, and thesis during their study. The module includes e.g. finding and evaluating electronic resources subscribed by Gdańsk University of Technology, reference management software, and other tools for managing information, or open access databases.
