Hello everyone, my name is William Farrell, the new Research Information Advisor in the Library. I am replacing Helen Steele who has left for pastures new. I will be working alongside Selina Lock and the rest of the Research Services team.
Responsible for humanities and social science researchers, I am here to help you with:
· literature searching
· using databases
· managing information
So email me to ask a question, or set up an appointment to discuss your work. You can find me in the offices on the ground floor of the Library from Monday to Friday, 9am - 5:30pm. Those of you who work off-campus can also arrange a meeting via Skype.
Having completed a PhD I understand the challenges, as well as the opportunities, many of you will encounter. After the doctorate, I worked for the Global History Databank, an interdisciplinary project analysing the evolution of societies. This gave me insights into how people as different as archaeologists, psychologists and computer scientists work and think. Using this experience, I am looking forward to helping your research be successful here at Leicester.
