The not so secret ways we help your doctoral students.
This is a workshop hosted by HEDC and run by subject librarians several times a year.
Find out which topics, online resources and techniques subject librarians use to foster a community of practice toolkit for your doctoral students at Otago. Keep current and aware of best-practice initiatives and strategies in areas such as the literature review, data management, reference management, getting published, increasing research impact and researcher profiles.
