Referencing advice: The TQA and your teachers at St Patrick's College expect you to present all you work with citations and a reference list in the Harvard (author/date) format. Go to the Library's Referencing Guidelines for extended help in this area. The Library staff are always happy to help you with any queries you may have in regard to referencing requirements for any research you are undertaking.

You should submit all work ... internal, as well as external, with an Academic Integrity Declaration form.

Independent studies (IPs): When undertaking any independent study, research or book reviews you must allow yourself enough time to search for and locate the material you need. To help you a booking sheet is kept at the Library desk where you may book an individual time with one of the Library staff when commencing any research for SOSE.

Faculty resources: All material purchased for the teachers of SOSE Faculty is also available for student use if it is not required by the teachers. The resources are kept in the Library and can be found by using the Library catalogue.
