Thank you to all the new research students who worked so hard in today’s session in the library.
Given how many tools we covered in the morning, I thought it might be helpful to provide a list of these, with links, so you can revisit them later at your leisure. You’ll see that there are a few extra tools that were mentioned today but not explored.
We started by looking at university and external resources:
Rachel Jillions of the University of the Arts London has just sent through details of this conference which might be of interest to researchers in Art and Design.
Research Data Management in Art and Design
Thursday 11th December
University of the Arts London is holding a one day conference on Research Data Management in Art and Design – ‘Where are we now?’
The conference will be an opportunity to learn about how data management is being addressed in the unique fields of Art and Design from the perspectives of the Arts and Humanities Research Council, University Research and Data Managers, and the Researchers themselves.

This year, Professor David Hands will explore issues of stress, care and compassion in the workplace, particularly the NHS, informed by his extensive research and significant operational experience in health service policy and development.
In preparation for a conference in Sweden next week, Professor Jeff Ollerton is giving a sneak preview of his 20 minute conference presentation. And he would love some feedback!
“Extinctions of aculeate pollinators in Britain and the role of large-scale agricultural changes” will be held on Wednesday 22nd October at 4pm in Newton NW205, Avenue Campus.
Nick Dimmock, Research Information Specialist in Research Support, LLS, will be running “Finding Resources on the Web” on Thursday, 30 October 2014 from 11:00 to 13:00 in the TPod, Rockingham Library, Park Campus.
Open to all research students and early career researchers, the workshop will focus on ways to ensure the information you find is useful and usable.
You don’t even have to contribute to every discussion – just add your opinions on things that matter to you. Only by hearing from research students can LLS ensure its services are meeting your needs.

Kevin Deane (NBS) is leading an initiative to create a new research centre – the Africa Research Centre – which is intended to be a university-wide collaboration to help showcase our research on Africa, build an external identity, help with funding bids, host external speakers and provide a forum for cross-disciplinary work, as well as involving our many students across the university who are interested in African issues.
If you are involved in research in or about Africa and are interested in joining the discussion about creating the Africa Research Centre, please email Kevin (email@example.com) who will be able to give you more information.
