Researcher Training: Summer Term 2020

The Library's Research Support Team offer training to postgraduate research students and staff through the Research Excellence Training programme. Although we are unable to run face-to-face workshops during the Summer Term, we are running some online Question and Answer sessions. The slides for all our workshops are also available for you to view. The slides and further details are available on the Library Training page.
