Postgraduate Researcher Development


"I can manage information effectively and have general ICT skills."

As researchers, we work with information every day. It is crucial that you manage your literature, data and references properly, not only to comply with regulations but also so that you can conduct your research effectively.

You must also have developed general ICT skills, such as the ability to produce a variety of document types, create a professional presentation, or manage your emails. These may sound elementary, but many people are not as well-versed in these skills as they could be.

You can develop these skills through courses run by the Cambridge University Libraries and the University Information Services. There are also several LibGuides on managing your data and literature.
