The University Libraries recently conducted a survey on research training needs. Thank you to everyone who responded. The survey ran over December 2014 and January 2015 with 233 responses. Key findings include:
- There is a clear demand for research support training on topics related to choosing journals to publish with, bibliometrics, altmetrics, social media and research profiles, and open research data.
- Responses indicate that more than one training delivery method is desirable (e.g. face to face and online).

The University Libraries are developing new information and research skills training modules, based on the feedback. Additionally, the University Libraries’ online introductory tutorials will be reviewed.
Library research support information is available on our Research Support LibGuide and by contacting your Research or Branch Librarian. The University Libraries continue to offer EndNote training (view upcoming sessions here) and data management planning workshops (view upcoming session here).
