Next week sees the James Hardiman Library’s inaugural Research Week initiative, with events kicking off on Monday 18 October and concluding Friday 22 October. This week is a chance for the librarians and archivists to share their knowledge on all aspects of research directly with those conducting it. The Library staff aim to showcase the resources and facilities available to NUI Galway’s research community, and to encourage their use.
A very full schedule of events is planned for the week, including seminars from our Research Support Librarians, Special Collections Librarians, and the Archives Service. Presentations will be held every day on such topics as research resources, research dissemination, open access publishing, and maximising the impact of your own research. Specific presentations will be given on humanities and social sciences research and also on research in the fields of science, technology and medicine. Presentations will be held both within the library and on-site in the University's research centres. Check the library's website for the forthcoming full programme for the week, or contact the Research Support Librarians, Rosarie Coughlan (Science, Technology and Medicine) and Gwen Ryan (Humanities and Social Sciences) for more information.
These events are open to all students, whether they are already in the field of research or contemplating it for the future. It’s a great opportunity to speak directly with the experts, and to explore the potential of the Library as a resource for your own research.
