Supporting your research leaflet

 We have just released a new library leaflet on how we can help support your research.

You can download the leaflet from the library website or pick up a copy from the library.

There is a form attached to the leaflet (see image below) asking for some basic details about you, your research, any help you currently require and some questions:

- Would you like us to send you our initial thoughts about relevant library services and resources available through the Library?
- Would you like to make an appointment to discuss your needs in detail?
- Would you like to be put in touch with others doing similar research?

You can return the form to any of the help desks in the library or by post.

Or you can email the answers to:

Selina Lock (College of Medicine, Biological Science & Psychology and College of Science & Engineering)

Helen Steele (College of Social Sciences and College of Arts, Humanities & Law).

We also hope to have a web-form available in the near future.


  1. Your blog has given me that thing which I never expect to get from all over the websites. Nice post guys!

  2. Those achievements were earned offline, so Xbox Live has no record of you ever doing them. When you recovered your gamertag, it how to access iphone with broken screen reset it to the last time it was seen by Live, when you only had 3000G, effectively erasing all gamerscore accumulated between the last time you were online and the recovery.

Inserting special characters in EndNote/RefWorks

When importing references into software like EndNote or RefWorks you might find special characters and diacritical marks are stripped out.

You can edit the reference in the software and re-insert the appropriate character in several ways:
1) Copy and past the character in.

2) If you using a Windows computer with a number pad you can hold down the ALT key and type in a numerical code for the character you want e.g. ALT 130 will insert é.

There is a list of Alt Codes available at

Penn State University has an excellent guide to typing in accents and special characters in Windows or Macs. Including Alt codes, Mac codes and how to use the character map/viewer.

These tips can also be applied in other software and web interfaces, as well as in bibliographic software. ☺ = ALT 1

Inserting Citations & References into PowerPoint with EndNote

EndNote X7, which is available on University computers, now has a toolbar for inserting citations and references into PowerPoint.

1)    Open up PowerPoint and place your cursor where you wish to insert a citation or a reference.
2)    Click on the EndNote X7 tab.
3)    Choose the reference style you want to use from the drop-down menu.
4)    Click Insert Citation or Insert Reference
5)    Search for the reference you want or search on * to bring up a list of all your references.
6)    Click on Insert.

You will need to insert the citation and the references separately as this is not a Cite While You Write toolbar like the one in Word.

Your New Doctoral College Reading Room

The Doctoral College Reading Room, at the front of the first floor of the library, is now designed for use by PGR students and staff only.

The space includes a separate Silent Study area with desks and computers, a quiet area with desks and informal seating, and a bookable group study room.

We would encourage PGR students and staff to make full use of this space.

Masters students now have a separate Graduate Reading Room elsewhere on the first floor.

As part of the new arrangements there is now a Consultation Room, which we are also using for upcoming events, including Shut Up & Write! and Research Data Drop-in Clinics.
