Library guide for researchers

We have produced a library guide for researchers. It acts as central hub with information about library services for staff who are undertaking research.

It includes links to (amongst other things):

  • Finding information for your research (including interlibrary loans, requesting books and access to other libraries)
  • Open Access and depositing your research
  • Bibliometrics
  • Research Data Management
  • Copyright
  • Scholarly publishing – including links to peer-review procedures and list of predatory journals
  • Managing your scholarly ID: information on ORCID, ResearcherID, Google Scholar and how to add it to BRIAN
  • List of workshops that we offer
  • Postgraduate support

EThOS – Find out more about the British Library’s free online thesis service

The British Library are hosting their first EThOS webinar:

Using doctoral theses in your research: a guide to EThOS

EThOS is the national database for PhD theses, managed by the British Library. It’s a fantastic resource for researchers, with over 100,000 UK theses freely available to download and use for your own research, and another 200,000 available to search and scan on demand.

Join the free webinar to learn how EThOS works. Find out how to search for and download theses, and what to do if a thesis isn’t available. If you’re a PhD student, find out what will happen to your thesis once it’s completed. They will also explain how EThOS works with UK universities to support the whole research cycle, making the theses more visible and available for new researchers to use and build on.

This webinar is aimed at researchers, students, librarians and anyone who is interested in finding and using PhD theses.

Webinar on 10 December 2013, 11.00am GMT
