From Library online you can find:
The A-Z list of databases.
The subject guides, with detailed information for particular areas.
For items which we do not have in our collection, you can request them from the Document Supply service.
To help you to organise sources, we provide access to the RefWorks reference management tool.
Elements is the system you'll use to keep a record of your scholarly and creative works- articles, conference papers, books and book chapters, art works etc. You will be able to add works from previous institutions, and then use Elements to add new works.
It may take a little time for Elements to get your details so that you can log in. If after a few days you can't log in, email the team and we can investigate.
You will also come across SHURA. This is the site we use to share details of scholarly and creative works with people outside Hallam, and where we put open access versions of scholarly and creative works. Items you add to Elements will appear in SHURA if you include the item file.
If you collect or use data in your research, have a look at our data management pages.
When you apply for ethical approval of a project, you will need to include a data management plan. Our team will review this and offer feedback.
At the end of the project, data connected to publications needs to be added to SHURDA, the data archive. Data can also be shared via the archive, for other researchers to use. You will discuss what (if any) data you will share, and on what terms, in your data management plan.
If you've not got one already, set up your ORCID id. It doesn't take long, and you can add your ORCID to publications, which makes them more findable. You can also connect your ORCID profile to Elements, helping to keep them up to date.
Your ORCID id is one way in which you can increase the reach and impact of your work. You can find out how to use other tools, such as social media and altmetrics, in our influential researcher pages.
