  • Enhancements to Find an Expert

    Find an Expert (FaE) is an important public-facing researcher profiling website that draws tens of thousands of people looking for a researcher at the University of Melbourne to establish a partnership, provide research supervision or seek an expert opinion.

    As a critical public-facing website to showcase the intellectual capital on offer from our diverse range of researchers, we are ensuring that we are continually improving the FaE technology. Recent enhancements include a supervision enquiry form, a collection of theses supervised by a researcher, display of journal and book covers, and the capability to print profiles to hand out at conferences.

  • Scholarly Services updates

    Graduate Researchers are able to book an appointment to browse general library collections in a range of UoM Libraries. Graduate Researchers have all been advised of this development and given information of the booking and approval processes.

    Bookable appointments to access both the Archives and Special Collections Reading Room in the Baillieu Library and the collection "browse and borrow" services were extended to approved UoM researchers as of Monday 7 December. This is by appointment only and via existing approval to attend campus processes. To make an appointment:

    1. Submit a return to campus request form
    2. Choose the Approval Type as ‘Research’, and request access to the Building in which the library you wish to visit is located. The application will be approved by your Academic Division approver
    3. Complete the online COVID-Safe training module in TrainMe and health declaration. Further details can be found on the attending campus page
    4. Once you have approval to attend campus, book an appointment.

    Researchers must show Academic Division approval to attend campus and evidence of the health declaration (completed on the morning of attendance on campus) to be admitted to the Library.

    Please also view the Browse and Borrow arrangements in place for select Libraries during January.
