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."

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.

We sympathise with you! An alternative is to look at the list of training on our Researchers page

Or you can look at brand new guide to the Postgraduate Researcher Workshop Programme

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



Finding Company Reports Using Library Search

Company reports are an important source for anyone studying businesses and industries. We provide access to 100,000s reports through Mergent Online and Mergent Archive.  But we still hold print reports in the Library. These are mainly from banks, building societies and the transport sector.

You can find these reports with the print periodicals in the basement of the David Wilson Library.

To find them using the Library search follow the steps below.

1. Go to the Advanced Search. Change Material Type to 'Journal'.

2.To find a particular company use the name of company AND "annual report" or 
"annual report and accounts". Here's an example for the Alliance and Leicester Building Society:






3. To search for a sector, try Bank (or Building Society or Transport) AND "annual report" or 
"annual report and accounts". Use a date range if appropriate.
