UJ will be offering its postgraduate students training to further bolster their research and intellectual judgment skills in November 2017.
The University’s Library and Information Centre will be conducting the training on November the 8th, 22nd at Soweto Campus and on the 9th, 21st of November at Doornfontein Campus.
“The Library’s Postgraduate training programme is offered by our very own Faculty Librarians and it is grounded in the belief that the Library is a strong pillar for research support,” said Ivy Segoe, an Information Officer at UJ.

The programme’s area of focus will be the imperative skills for conducting a research process, which will entail accessing and printing e-books, the writing of a literature review and be dealing with issues related to intellectual properties such as copyright.
“The training programme stems from the understanding that the best library resources that we have available are of no use to our students if they do not know how to use them to their best advantage,” added Segoe.
The programme is part of a perennial conduct of the University during the course of the year amongst others. It is geared at aiding students to acquire the necessary research skills, which in turn will assist the University’s research productivity.
