Re-skilling for Research Support

‘Reskilling for Research’ is a one-day workshop being offered through ALIA Training. The course is for information professionals who support researchers. These web pages provide the support material for the course.

The 2012 RLUK Re-skilling for Research Report found that library staff need to feel confident and skilled to deliver support to researchers in a responsive and relevant way. Librarians supporting researchers are often lacking the required skills and knowledge and that there is a lack of training opportunities for them. This course is a small attempt by one research librarian to share her knowledge with others.

Areas covered in the workshop:

1)     Analysis of researchers’ scholarly information and training needs

2)     Supporting the publication process

3)     Social media for researchers

 Upcoming dates for ‘open’ workshops:
  • Can be customised for in-house delivery for librarians or researchers
