On Friday 27 October, the University Library held its first Researchers’ Fair. Over the four hours of talks and events, 200 people dropped in and over 150 people joined us via the instagram livestream.
A diverse range of events were played, viewed and created, from learning How (not) to Fail your PhD, to speed dating our Archives and Special Collection treasures, and making artwork inspired by the archives.
‘Lightning’ talks were held on topics ranging from getting published and noticed, to tools for managing and improving your research and research career, to copyright and Open Access. Speaker presentations and further information are available below, so if you want to refresh your memory, or couldn’t be there on the day, then browse the list below.
