One of the first things to do when you start your PhD is get to know your friendly local librarian! Find out about the resources and collections you can access at Sussex, the tailored support available to doctoral researchers, and the Research Hive study space for PGRs.

This workshop will introduce you to Library collections and discovery tools. With useful guidance from the Library Research Support Team, this workshop will highlight key Library research resources and services.

About the facilitators: The Library Research Support team support researchers at all levels across the University. They offer bookable one-to-one sessions tailored to suit your specific research needs, run various group training workshops, and organise seminars and events to engage with the research community on campus. Together with the Hive Scholars, the team also look after the Sussex Research Hive, the Library's dedicated space for researchers.
