Library Training

We deliver tailored training sessions for students and researchers at Keele. Our 'In a Nutshell' workshops introduce key academic skills in bitesize, 30 minute workshops. Whilst our 'Information Skills for Research' sessions are more intensive sessions covering topics such as: open access, research impact and impact factors, and literature searching.

Unable to attend our training sessions?
