Finding Grey Literature - Online Webinar
This online webinar will focus on searching for ‘grey literature’: unpublished or hard to find research materials. These include: PhD theses, conference papers, reports, and government publications. Every researcher wants to feel confident in the quality of their literature review. However, not all relevant material appears in the main databases. We provide participants with strategies for finding grey literature and improving the strength of your literature review.

PhD students: Tools for note taking
Making and organising notes is a fundamental activity for researchers. A variety of tools now exist that support all types of note taking, whether you are working in a lab, archive or out in the field. Knowing which ones are right for you can be a challenge however. This session aims to make that choice easier. We introduce researchers to the range of tools out there, and show examples of how others are using them. Participants will also have the opportunity to practice using tools that interest them. Finally, we will look at best practice for storing and backing up research notes.
