Do you want to learn more about libraries of the future?

The Open Science Framework (OSF) for data and project management is a science-focused tool that can manage their all kinds of research data during a project and also deal with other types of data created during a project, e.g. steering group minutes, presentations, interview permissions.
Some of the advantages are:
– Very quick start up time– it’s possible to get a project up and running in a couple of minutes.
– Possible to upload and categorise all kinds of data and files. For example, ‘methods’, ‘hypotheses’ and ‘communication’.
– Ability to store versions of data – revisions to each file can be stored.
– Different files can have different levels of permission.
– Ability to create public versions of parts of projects, with citations.
Big data is everywhere – or at least it seems to be. It may seem that all social research is now devoted to big data in various forms: social media, administrative data, transaction records, geo-spatial data, and more.
This is an introductory webinar aimed at researchers interested in big data and social research ethics.
The webinar will consist of a 30 minute presentation followed by questions and answers.
On the night of Monday 22nd August from 10.00pm until 1.00am we will be doing some maintenance on the Encore catalogue – http://encore.exeter.ac.uk/iii/encore/?lang=eng this is where we direct you to search for full text journal articles currently.
It should not affect use of the main catalogue or your ability to access online e-resources in any way.
You can search for journal titles on the main catalogue as normal and access all our databses via the A-Z and subject searched.
If you do have any issues rememeber you can contact us by e-mail at
We apologise but there is a problem with access to some e-resources, our IT team is currently working to fix it.
While this issue is ongoing you may be able to get around the problem by the following methods.
Find the resource via a web search and look for an option to login via the site. This will usually be signed as something like ‘login via your institution’, ‘Shibboleth’ or ‘UK Federation’. Then select ‘University of Exeter’ and login normally.
Find the resource via the Library site. If the link gives a ‘too many redirects’ or ‘502 bad gateway’ error then amend as follows.
Have a look at the link you are trying to access: if it has the bits in red and bold
Academic Staff – did you know that your resource (reading) list can be fully interactive, linking to the full text wherever possible via your module in ELE?
Let us remove the burden of administration: all we need from you is your reading list as a word or pdf document as early as possible before term starts. We’ll build the list in your chosen layout, scan key chapters, order any out of stock items and make it available via ELE.
If you have sent us a reading list in the past, you’ll need to let us know if you still want it active so we can check and update any electronic links.
