Although it is important for individual researchers to be aware of the electronic resources in the Library and those in the open access domain and how to apply these to present their case for research impact to its best advantage, the Personal Librarians can provide assistance and training in how to use these resources.
Contact the Personal Librarians to assist you with setting up your Researcher Profiles for NRF rating.
