Webinars and workshops running in January


Our Library Services staff run a wide range of webinars and in-person workshops to support your work and boost your success at Cranfield. They cover topics including using our databases effectively, referencing, study skills, the use of academic language and research support. Many of these run at lunchtimes (and are called Lunch+Learn sessions) but others run in the evenings so hopefully there is a time that suits you!

Remember, you don’t have to wait until we run a webinar if you need help! If you have any questions, at any time, you can contact us by email, webchat (via our website), or just drop in and see us so we can sort out any issues you may have.
