Welcome to the new revised edition of PILOT. It has been developed to support you with your research. It aims to:

  • provide a holistic overview of searching, information and the rapidly changing world of scholarly communication
  • cover aspects of the publication process, including open access and internet publishing plus subject and institutional repositories
  • give information on bibliographic software, copyright, referencing and plagiarism 

You can use PILOT as a linear programme or you can dip in and out of it as required. You can contact library staff at any time using email, or during office hours by telephone, or by visiting the library.

If you have any suggestions or feedback, please contact the PILOT web team at ddil@gcu.ac.uk
