This month the Library Service will be running two lunchtime webinars, open to any Cranfield staff member or student interested in research.
They will consist of a short presentation, followed by discussion and your questions on the topic. There will also be time for you to ask us any burning research support-related questions you might have!
You will be able to access them both on and off campus, but you will need to book a place through the DATES system on the intranet.
