Research support

The Library is here to support research students and staff at GCU.

We can help by: 

  • providing one to one tailored support for research including support with literature searching and systematic reviews
  • providing workshops on literature searching with a focus on effective searching and identifying discovery tools, databases and other information sources
  • providing advice on measuring research impact and bibliometrics
  • providing access to our Archives and Special Collections
  • providing guidance on copyright
  • providing advice on referencing and the use of Reference Management Software such as RefWorks
  • providing access to our research repository and advice on open access publishing
  • providing online support via PILOT (communication, information and research skills for postgraduates and researchers)

If you're new to using the resources and services available in the library please visit the Using the Library page which includes information about using inter-library loans and SCONUL Access.
