The Research Skills Toolkit is coming in January 2017, week 1 of Hilary term. Kick off your new term with some great ideas for tools and techniques that will make a real difference for your research.

These 2-hour workshops – developed for 1st and 2nd year graduate researchers – give you a hands-on encounter with a range of practical IT and information tools to support your research. Research Skills Toolkit is an initiative run jointly by the Bodleian Libraries and IT Services and allows you to try out relevant software, online services and libraries techniques.

There are individual sessions tailored for Humanities, MPLS, Medical Sciences and Social Sciences, running between 16 and 20 January 2017: please click on the links to see the full details and to book your place:
