Training and support

The Library offers training and support to researchers at all stages of their career, whether you are a doctoral researcher (DR) or a professor.  The Library's programme offers both in-person workshops for DRs and on-demand training materials. The on-demand materials can be found in the Doctoral College's Remote Learning for Researchers Learn module. If the DRs complete the relevant reflective assessments, they gain learning credits. Supporting materials for the in-person sessions can be viewed in the Library's Research Central Learn module. These includes powerpoints for the different workshops, links, videos and lecture captures. The Library also provides a separate 'Effective literature searching for doctoral researchers' Learn module.

The Library co-delivers workshops and training with the Research and Enterprise Office in areas such as research visibility, open research and research data management. These are advertised via MyHR and directly to researchers. The Library works in partnership with the Doctoral College, Research and Enterprise Office, Centre for Academic Practice, LURSA and researchers themselves when deciding topics and offering training and support.  If you have any ideas for future sessions, please let us know.

The Library also offers one-to-one training and support to all researchers via the Academic Librarians, so if you want to know more about how to find information for your research or different areas of the scholarly communications process, please contact the Academic Librarian for your School or department; they will be very happy to help.
