Research skills

We offer a range of onsite programmes on research skills, including desk research, finding resources, internet search techniques and adding value. Programmes can also be tailored to meet your needs.

  • Cutting edge internet search techniques

    Efficient searching of the internet can be invaluable when dealing with enquiries. This course is designed to enable staff to use the internet as effectively as possible.

  • Desk research skills

    More and more library and information staff are being asked to carry out detailed desk research but have never had any formal training in the skills needed to do the job well.

  • Repackaging your research: adding value to your answers

    With more and more information delivered direct to end-users’ desktops, library and information staff need to go the extra mile if they are to safeguard and develop their organisation’s enquiry services.
