Abstract: Lecturers and students in the Civil and Building Engineering Department at Loughborough University were surveyed to gain an understanding of how they expected the literature review element of Final Year Projects to be undertaken. The results showed a disparity in the number and type of resources expected to be used; in the problems they anticipated when undertaking a literature review; and in the confidence levels students had in the use of information tools. Recommendations are made to improve the teaching of the literature review.
