New Facebook page

Our group for the Graduate School Reading Room is moving to a page, bringing us in line with other University organisations. Our page will bring you news and events relevant to the postgraduate community at Leicester. There will also be top tips courtesy of some PhD blogs.
So, come over and like us!

Where can I find the page?
Use the main search box on Facebook to find the 'Graduate School Reading Room' page. Once you have 'liked' us, the page will appear in your pages section. To find this, visit your timeline and look for the 'Likes' tab (next to your Friends and Photos tabs). If you click here you will find all the pages to which you are currently subscribed.

Can I post to the page?
Yes, everyone can post. These posts will appear on the timeline and also under 'Recent Posts by Others'.  If you have something of interest to the postgraduate community at Leicester, do share! Please note: the content of the page will be monitored and anything offensive or inappropriate will be removed.

How can I receive updates in my news feed?
Once you've 'liked' the page you should receive updates in your news feed every time a new post appears. If you've already 'liked' the page and are not receiving updates, you will need to check your settings.
There are two ways to do this:

1. Hover over the Liked button at the top of the page's timeline and select Show in News Feed.

2. From your home page, hover over News Feed in the left sidebar menu. Click the pencil icon that appears to the left. You will see a list of people/apps/pages/groups that you have either hidden or are currently unsubscribed from. Click the X next to each one you'd like to remove from the list. Removing the page from this list means that updates will appear in your news feed again. Click Save to confirm the settings. Even if you don't think you've hidden or unsubscribed from the page, it is worth checking! I was surprised to find a number of my 'liked' pages hiding here.

Feel free to contact me directly (hs231) if you have any queries or concerns.

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.

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
