Maintaining momentum: using aggregators to facilitate your current awareness
Maintaining momentum: using aggregators to facilitate your current awareness In-Person / Online
Keeping on top of the disparate sources of information in order to ensure you are constantly abreast of changes in your subject area can be time consuming and overwhelming. Here we will introduce you to the idea of aggregators which, as online tools, will help you organise the many strands of information you need to monitor into a simple newsfeed for your own use.
The workshop will be delivered both in person and online to give you the options. However, in order to ensure that you get the most out of the session, we would like to encourage you to come in person and get help with hand-on exercises e.g. setting up accounts and adding alerts. Continue to register with this event booking and choose either face-to-face or online as you like. Feel free to cancel one event booking and book the other to suit your needs, when you circumstances change.
