Those of you who have attended Research Bites this term will have noticed that we’re now sending out a 3 question survey to get quick feedback after each session. Thank you so much to the people who have taken the time to respond and add your comments – this is really useful in developing what we offer, and how we offer it.
In response, we’re going to work a little more with our presenters to keep the sessions short (ideally 20 minutes) so you can get back to your research! Also, the suggestion to use one room on campus per term is a good one. This isn’t always possible, but one room per month may be realistic. We’ll try this out in January 2015.
The January programme is almost ready, so watch this blog or your email for details. (TIP: You can follow this blog by clicking the button on the side bar, or if you’re on your phone, right at the bottom of the page).
There are just two more sessions left this term:
Finding and using Creative Commons licensed material: images, videos and more. Thursday 11th December, 12.00. County Main SR 2
An overview of some useful sources of Creative Commons-licenced images, icons, video and music, the types of CC licences, plus some best practice when reusing the work of others in your teaching or research. Tim Leonard, Assistant Librarian, Library.
Refining your search strategy: using keywords, subject headings, thesauri. Friday 12th December, 12.00. County Main SR 7
Develop an effective search strategy using the thesaurus or system of subject headings alongside your own keywords to find the key papers for a thorough review of the literature.

Hope to see you there!
