Science, Agriculture and Engineering Postgraduate Researcher Development Programme: Welcome

Materials to support the SAgE Postgraduate Researcher Development Library workshop Programme

Programme overview

Interacting with information is at the very heart of your research but you may place different emphasis on it at different stages of your research career.

The Library facilitates research at all stages, aiming to help you to become an "informed researcher".

Individual library support for your research

In addition to our workshop programme, we also provide individual consultations for all research students.

As you begin your PhD, we know that there are many pressures on your time. Please try to make time to contact your Liaison Librarian as you begin your PhD to discuss your research topic.

This helps us provide effective support for your research from the outset. You will meet the members of the SAgE Library Liaison team throughout the programme.

Our programme

Our programme for SAgE PhD students consists of a range of workshops. You may choose to attend some sessions as you embark upon your PhD, others may be more relevant as you start writing up.

Most sessions consist of a presentation followed by a practical workshop where you can ask questions and try out our resources for yourself.
