Creative cuppa next event

I'm looking forward to the next Creative Cuppa seminar on Monday 26 Oct. The last seminar was a great opportunity to listen to an excellent paper, take part in some thought-provoking discussion and eat cake with like-minded people! Details below...

Upcoming Event: Creative Cuppa 12th Coffee Meetup
Theme: Digital Journalism / Media Convergence
Title: New media: New journalism?
Time: 12:00pm - 13:00pm (Monday, 26 October 2009)
Venue: ATT SB2.09 (Attenborough Tower), City Campus, University of Leicester
Guest Speaker: Dr. Kostas Saltzis
Event Coordinator: Mokhtar Elareshi

Event description: by Dr. Kostas Saltzis
"Faced with the challenges of the converging media environment, traditional news organisations expand their activities on the internet and they are slowly redefining themselves as multi-media instead of single media organisations based on media-neutral competitive advantages. At the same time, there is an impetus towards multimedia production and distribution which is achieved through newsroom integration and work reorganisation. This working environment requires more versatility from journalists who have to keep up with multiple demands and continuous pressure. Finally, multimedia production challenges the tradition of media separation in production and culture and sets the conditions for the detachment of news from its medium specific formats."

Library publishing services

The Library offers several services to help you publish and disseminate your research. We can help you publish reports, journals and conference proceedings. We also support the publishing of digital collections.

Research publications The Library can help you to publish one-off reports in an open access format. See this example from the SAPPHIRE Group in Health Sciences.  If you want to start a new open access journal or conference proceedings, we have our own version of Open Journal Systems (OJS). This is journal management and publishing platform for academic publications. Articles published through this system are free to any reader, and no APCs are charged to authors. 
Please contact Library Research Services for more information: librarians@le.ac.uk

Finding our training

I had some feedback last week that searching PROSE is not the easiest way to find out what library training is on offer.

If you have any questions about the training please email Selina or myself: librarians@le.ac.uk
