Dear All,

Are you interested in how other researchers in the University manage their data? Come along and find out what worked for them and discuss your own data problems in the panel Q & A session at our first Digital Research Conversation (DRC)!

 The newly formed BEAR Research Engagement Group are holding our first DRC on Wednesday 6th December, 12-2 pm in Westmere House (G15). We intend to hold one per term featuring a different topic each time – hopefully in response to topics proposed by our researchers who attend. For our first session, we will be discussing managing data from creation to destruction. Two invited speakers will be joining us – Melanie Britton from Chemistry and Catherine Smith from Theology. Danielle Fuller from Arts will also be joining in the Q & A panel session.

 Alternatively, if you’re new to the University and would like to have more of an overview of services provided to researchers & information regarding open access, research metrics, social media and copyright, then Library Services are holding their Raising your Research Profile ‘showcase’ on Wednesday 6th December, 12-1.30 pm in the Main Library Training Room.
