Library services and digital research
The University Library and digital research team provide a number of services to help researchers plan for, manage, and publish their research.
The University Library provides support and advice to researchers on digital humanities and research computing, special collections and academic liaison.
Libraries and Museums have been developing tools to provide an alternative to, or to complement, the use of original material. The two key tools are Exhibit (digital storytelling with 3D objects, scanned material and images) and Recogito (for collaborative annotation).
The academic liaison team look after the information needs of staff and students and are keen to ensure that their research requirements are met.
The Library is home to many historic and rare special collections, available to researchers from within and beyond the University.
The digital research team provide support and advice on Open Access, the journal hosting service and research data management.
The Open Access team provides support and information on all aspects of Open Access including how to deposit in Pure, Open Access costs and complying with funders' policies.
The research data team provides support on all aspects of research data management including how to create a data management plan, organising your data, any ethical, legal and security issues to consider and how to share your data at the end of your project.
The journal hosting service offers support for academic staff and students who are interested in setting up their own online journals.
