The University Libraries’ Nel Duffield, Jaime Royals and Helen Attar are conducting research into job offer negotiations in libraries as part of an international research project.

Nel, Jaime and Helen are very pleased to be part of the research project. Nel, who is the Learning and Research Services Librarian, commented that “it is very exciting, not only because the topic is of direct relevance and interest to our profession, but also because it gives us an opportunity to engage with the research process”.

The research project will examine the prevalence and attitude towards negotiating job offers from the perspective of job applicants and hiring managers. The aim is to deduce a scientifically based set of guidelines for negotiating job offers, applicable to librarians at all stages of their careers. This is an international study, building on the research conducted by collaborators Leo Lo, from Old Dominion University in Virginia, and Jason Reed from Purdue University in Indiana.

If you currently work in a library (or if you have previously worked in a library), or if you have employed someone to work in a library, we would like to hear from you! To participate, please fill out the online survey.

They’re new, they’re red, and they’re surprisingly comfy!

Level 2 North of the Barr Smith Library has had a mini-makeover! The existing carrels have been reconfigured to take advantage of the natural light, additional carrels have been brought in, and new couches and chairs have also arrived. New tables should be arriving any day now…

The new study spaces have been created in response to student feedback, and the changes have been possible thanks to the collection revitalisation project. You can read more about the changes on the website or simply ask an Ask Library team member.

Feedback is welcome – please speak with an Ask Library team member or tell us your thoughts online.

Do you search for journal articles using Google Scholar?
We have had to make changes to the way you access Google Scholar due to ongoing technical issues (the short version is that Google keeps thinking that we are robots and so they keep cutting off our access). On campus access will work as usual, but if […]
