New ‘Research Elevenses’ for January


This January we are running a series of 30 minute talks on key issues for Leicester researchers. There’s no need to book - just turn up!
 
If you are off-campus you can join in live via Adobe Connect. A recording of each session will be made available after the event.


Electronic PhD theses: our “best sellers”


12th Jan

11am, ATT 208

Electronic theses are the most popular downloads from Leicester Research Archive (LRA) and form a huge body of knowledge which is often only available from the LRA. All doctoral theses are now submitted in electronic form and we’ve scanned older printed theses right back to the founding of the University. Apart from embargoed works, most Leicester theses are now available to the world.
LRA Manager Grant Denkinson will share some highlights of our collection and his hopes for the future of open scholarship.
