I feel I’m struggling to keep up at the moment. I’ve been meaning to read the RIN report on the information needs of researchers for a while. Peter Godwin posted about this recently so has saved me a job! (Peter was also looking particularly stunning as his wild west birthday party last weekend!) But seriously, this report relates to some work I’m doing with the library at LSE to help build an online space for research students. We did some focus groups last week which gave us some really valuable data about the type of support PhD students need and how they don’t compartmentalise the support they need into Library / IT Services / study skills support etc.
