New Researcher Services webpages

by | Nov 5, 2018 | News, Workshops/training | 0 comments

We have re-designed our Researcher Services webpages to bring together all the services that the Library offers to support research in one place.

The Library can help shape your research project at every stage; whether you want to search and use our collections and sources, get advice on how to manage your data, or increase the openness and impact of your research, you can find all the information here on the webpages.

The webpages have six easy-to-use sections to make it easier for you to find the information you need:-

Using our collections

The Library provides access to a wide range of material to support and advance your research in the most appropriate and cost-effective way. Here you can find information about our collections and services, such as how to order journals, using our text-mining datasets, and our world renowned Special Collections.• Open research

The University supports and encourages engagement with the principles of Open Research. This section gives guidance on Open Access, sharing data and other research outputs and ensuring your publications are eligible for submission to the REF.

Managing research data

Every research study needs a data management plan, and most funders require you to share and deposit your data. We can support you with all aspects of Research Data Management, from initial planning to depositing your data in research data repositories and the Research Data Gateway.

Broadening audiences

Find out how the Library can help you reach a broader range of audiences with your research by communicating your findings in accessible and engaging ways on social media and the web. The John Rylands Library also engages with public audiences through a programme of events and school workshops, in line with the University’s public engagement strategy. Get in touch to discuss your research and potential engagement opportunities.

Academic and wider impact

Take advantage of our research metrics services to help you evidence the reach and impact of your research, both in academia using citation data and in non-academic spheres using altmetric data.

My Research Essentials

Find out more about the Library’s researcher development programme: My Research Essentials (MRE). MRE is the Library’s programme of workshops, events and online resources designed to support researchers with the development of skills at all stages of their career. Topics include dissemination of research and raising your research profile. To help researchers navigate the programme we have created a pathway for Postgraduate Research students
