Summer vacation loans 2012

by Debbie

There are some special arrangements for borrowing items from the Central Library over the Summer vacation.

  • From Saturday 23 June, short and standard loans may be borrowed on request by all borrowers until Tuesday 2 October, providing there are still 4 copies in the library.
  • You must ask if you want any books issued for the vacation, otherwise the usual loan periods will apply.

Blogs, Twitter, wikis and other web-based tools: collaborating and building your online presence

by Debbie

If you are interested in learning more about the tools and technologies available to use for your research (as well as the impact they can have on your online identity) we are re-running this course (initially run in 2011) for PhD students through the Graduate School Transferable Skills Programme.

To find out more about the programme (and for booking details), see the Graduate School course description or take a look at our programme blog which will give you an idea of what is involved (though do bear in mind it is in the process of being updated).

The opening workshop will run on 2 July from 2pm-4pm and the online content will need to be completed by the end of July.

Follow us on Twitter by following @research20 (or the hashtag #research20)

If you are a post-doc or researcher interested in the programme, please do email Jenny Evans, and if numbers allow we will include you!

The Library will also be running a Twitter for Researchers and Mendeley for Researchers course in July. I will post details here when they are available.
