Thursday 24 October
The Library will provide a light morning tea each day, though sadly we won't be able to provide cafe quality coffee... there are too many excellent options for coffee on campus! We will provide tea and water though, and don't worry - there should be biscuits left for the afternoon sessions.

Stay after the morning sessions or bring along your lunch to a library lunchtime session for assistance and advice on:

- research data management; and,
- writing and publishing.
