The Graduate School Networked Researcher (formerly the Graduate School Media Zoo) is here to help you develop the skills you need as 21st century researchers.
A series of workshops will introduce researchers to new technologies and give examples of good practice and digital professionalism. From creating your own ebooks, managing datasets, running a collaborative blog...researchers at Leicester are using these tools and you can too!
Starting from Monday 8th October a member of the Library Research Services team will be available in the Graduate School Reading Room on weekday afternoons for advice and one-to-one appointments. We can help with every stage of the research process: from finding grants to building your network, organising your references, keeping up-to-date with the latest articles, using Web 2.0 tools, developing a digital profile, data management, collaborating with other researchers, disseminating your research, and providing advice on copyright and open access.
The thesis forum will continue for those who prefer their networking face-to-face. Come along, enjoy a coffee and share your own thoughts on the doctoral process. Researchers from all disciplines and all stages of the PhD are welcome. More details about the November thesis forum will be available soon.
