Research Hub celebration events

Launch party and free events on level 13 of the Edward Boyle Library.


The much-anticipated Research Hub has now opened on level 13 of the newly refurbished Edward Boyle Library. This floor of the Library has been transformed to support and facilitate the University's research activities. It is open to staff and postgraduate students.

This October as part of International Open Access Week, the Library's Research Support and Data Management teams will be holding three events to celebrate the Hub's opening and to highlight the support available for University research.

Professor Lisa Roberts, Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Research and Innovation will speak at the Open Access event during the week.

Professor Roberts said, "This new facility is fantastic in providing us with a researcher focused study space where they can get together to exchange ideas and begin to develop exciting new interdisciplinary collaborations with colleagues. It will also be a wonderful venue to bring researchers together for events and training courses that help underpin our culture of research excellence."

The Library would welcome staff and postgraduates who might not have had a chance to see this new facility yet, to attend and hear from a host of people about the support available and issues affecting researchers.
