Our colleagues in IT Services offer software and training that may be of interested to researchers:
Work off-campus - instructions on accessing email, files and installing Office on your own machine.
Programs for home use - information on software you can install at home for free or at a discount, such as NVivo, SAS and SPSS
Research computing facilities - for those that might need high performance computing, wikis or filedrop services
Help & training - they run training courses on a variety of Office programs. We would highly recommend the Word - Long Document Essentials training to anyone writing a thesis.
If you will need to use software packages to analysis statistics or data then we suggest you look at the Research Methods & Methodologies training available from our colleagues in Researcher Development.
And don't forget that the library also runs lots of training for researchers too!
