  • Literature searching (advising on but not undertaking literature/systematic reviews)
  • Postgraduate skills training
  • Managing references and EndNote Desktop
  • Research metrics
  • Using other libraries
  • ORCiD and curating online publication profile
  • Introductory advice in Open Access, Research Data Management and copyright

We have a range of online resources available, and can arrange bespoke workshops for groups.  One-to-one appointments are available.  We also have a virtual ‘drop-in’ slot each Tuesday 15:00-16:00 in term time, where you can ask questions of one of our Research Skills Advisors.

Find out more about our offering on our team principles page.   

Please note that taught students can access support from the Academic Skills Centre.
