Hi Linda,

Research week is an annual program run by the Library. In addition, the workshops that form the program are offered later in the semester. We're working out dates and locations, but you can see the page where this information will be posted in our Research Skills pages.

If you can't attend Research Week, a selection of talks will be recorded and made available online. Handouts and presentation materials will also be made available after the events.

Kind regards,

Helen Chan

Hi Helen

 

When and where can I download the recordings for the talks? Would love to attend the workshops but can't due to other commitments

Hi Travis,

It'll be posted on the library's YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/user/UTSLibrary.

It'll also be announced on our web page. Please note, we are recording a selection of the sessions and not all.

Kind regards,

No sessions offered for part

Any chance some/any of these sessions could be offered after hours for part-time research students?

Hi James,

Thanks for your suggestion. We will be offering a number of our workshops after research week in the early evenings. These include topics like Endnote and will be posted on our events calendar in February.

Was there anything in particular that you would like to see? Additionally, you can book for an individual research consultation with a librarian that supports your faculty area, and these can often be offered after hours. You can book these using Ask a Librarian.

Kind regards,

Helen Chan

It is really great you do

It is really great you do these workshops. I just wish that at least some of them were offered in the evening. Many post-grad research students work and study part-time. This rarely seems to be recognised in the programs etc that are offered by the library, GRS or the faculties- they are almost always weekdays, day times. I have never been able to make any of them.

Hi Bruce,

Thank you for the feedback. It is something we've been hearing from other students as well, so we'll try our best to schedule some later sessions where possible.

Is there a particular topic you'd be most interested in? As I mentioned in the comment above, we're also happy to meet with you individually to cover similar content, and these can often be coordinated for an evening or potentially the weekend. Get in touch if you'd like to discuss further.

Kind regards,

Helen Chan
