Researcher Development Resource Library

Researcher Development has sourced a range of books to support researchers during various phases of their career.

These books can only be viewed by appointment at the Research Strategy Office.  They are not available for borrowing, however, we have a quiet room that can be booked for reading.

Access is restricted to UNSW  research staff only.

It is essential to make an appointment to view these resources.  Please contact Linda Coggiola
