Library news – Open Access, Great Hive Book Rescue

Open Access support from Library Services

Workshops to support staff with the Open Access requirements for the next REF are taking place and staff can sign up via the Staff Development Workshop portal.

April 14th: 12:15-13:15 (EE1062) “This session will introduce the idea of Open Access Publishing and how to use WRaP, the University’s Institutional Repository, to benefit your research profile and be compliant with HEFCE’s requirements for the next REF exercise.”

April 21st: 13:00-14:00 (EEG169) “This session is aimed at researchers who have something to deposit in WRaP. It will cover the steps you need to take to deposit an article. It will also consider how to get the most out of Open Access publishing; where to publish; what to consider when entering into agreements with publishers and how to measure impact.”

What students & staff want out of online learning materials

Recently, Library Services asked students & staff to fill in a short survey to tell us what kind of online support they would find useful. Overwhelming, everyone said they’d like more about referencing, and while tutors wanted Library Services to use more interactive tools, students still prefer traditional formats like downloadable activity sheets and Powerpoint presentations. Find out more about the results on our blog.
