Hilary and Trinity Term 2017

This is a series of short courses run by science subject librarians. The training programme is designed to provide support to students and staff undertaking research. Courses follow the research cycle and should help you identify, plan, gather, evaluate and manage research information.
Courses include demonstration of subject specific sources: databases, e-book series, e-journals, conferences, dissertations, and open access repositories; and provides tips on effective literature searching, citing and referencing options.
