Academic skills

Whatever your subject, year or level of study,  you will find a range of resources and web links here to help you with academic writing.  Writing at university may seem different to other writing experiences you’ve had but it is important to realise that it is part of a process which you develop over time (and not overnight!).

By accessing the sources on these pages, you can improve your understanding of what is meant by academic writing and how you can develop and enhance your own writing.

There are also further resources which you can access via the Learning Services section in Learning Edge.  Please look for Learning Services – Academic support on your Learning Edge home page.

For advice on Harvard referencing please access our online support which  also includes some helpful  FAQ’s.

You can also come to the Ask desk, 1st floor, University Library, Ormskirk and speak to one of our specialist help team or book a one to one for more support.
