Research support

The library at UEA provides a number of services that are of particular benefit to researchers:


One to one support

Spaces in the Library

Publishing research and UEA repository

Keeping up to date

Social networks

Increasingly researchers are taking advantage of social networks and web tools such as Twitter, blogs, bookmarking to create new international contacts, share research ideas and promote research to the public.

Research Information Network has a report with guidance on the use of social media by researchers and LSE has a project researching impact of social sciences which includes a guide on using Twitter.

Citation science

The REF has highlighted the growing importance of bibliometrics in research.  A brief guide explaining some of the terms used is here.
