Doctoral School



Alongside its vast selection of books, journals, and online resources, the Library is also home to the Research Support Team. They offer group training workshops, seminars and one-to-one sessions. Together with the Hive Scholars, they also look after the Sussex Research Hive, a dedicated space for researchers.

See the Library website for the latest information about accessing study space and items from the collection during the pandemic.

In this video Bethany Logan, Academic Services Librarian (Research & Scholarship), explains how the Research Support Team can help you:

 Many researchers tell us that they found the one-to-one sessions particularly helpful during the early stage of their PhDs. These sessions are tailored to your specific needs and can include:

  • a guide to discovering and exploiting the best resources for your research area, from print collections to online journals and databases
  • a session to update you on what new resources are available
  • developing strategies for more systematic literature searching

You can find out more, or book a slot, through the Research Support website.
