Event description

Description

Get started (or get a refresher) with the basics for research!

What?

At this full-day event we will deliver 3 of the Library's most popular workshops for HDR students AND our new training for Research Data Management in collaboration with Deakin eResearch.

  • Brush up on your literature searching skills
  • Learn the basics of the reference management software Endnote
  • Take control of your research data
  • Network with other students
  • Meet your librarians.

Where?

This is an in-person event at Deakin Downtown.

Why not online or via VMP?

All workshops will be repeated via Skype for Business during 2018. This event aims to cater to those who prefer learning in a face-to-face environment.

Who should attend?

The workshops are targeted at new or recently commenced HDR students, from any discipline background. Students further in their candidature, or research staff looking to refresh their skills or learn new techniques are also very welcome.

Parts of the workshops involve hands-on exercises - if you would like to participate please bring along a laptop.
