Resource Discovery Day

This will be held in the Manton building on Thurs 18th Jan, 10am – 2pm.

Several of our database suppliers will have stands in the Atrium and they are happy to deliver short talks in lectures. If any of you would find it helpful

to have a demo of a particular resource for 10 minutes within a lecture, please get in touch.
