Getting started with Prezi

If you've been at a conference, lunchtime seminar or APG upgrade recently, you may have noticed some presentations which clearly stand out from the rest of the Powerpoint bunch. An increasing number of Leicester researchers are discovering Prezi, a dynamic piece of presentation software. You can find some examples on the Graduate School Networked Researcher page (and below) but for some really mind-blowing Prezis take a look at the finalists in the Ideas Matter Contest.

We have several sessions next term to help you get started. Beginners Prezi workshops will run on 8th May and 15th May. If you can't wait til then, you'll find plenty of tutorials on the Prezi Learn pages.

For those who are already confident users, why not come along to the Intermediate sessions? You'll find out some new tips and tricks and learn how other Leicester researchers are using Prezi. Intermediate workshops will run on 5th June and 26th June. Please note: you must be willing to share one of your Prezis if you attend this class.

Places are limited, so all workshops must be booked via PROSE 
If you can't attend the workshops but would like to find out more, contact Helen.

Happy zooming!

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



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
