As a newbie researcher myself trying out the wide variety of tools out there, we decided (in the library) to try out a day all about the various tools out there for researchers to promote their research and themselves.

With a free lunch provided and a varied set of sessions on things from Twitter and creating a profile on the university’s research system, Pure, we had a good coverage of varied topics.

I myself hosted a session on social academic networks (focusing specifically on Google Scholar, ResearchGate & Mendeley!)

oooh our five minutes are up for writing a blog post in the session on blogging!
