Research Week at Bond Library

Library Services is proud to be part of Bond Research Week, and we have a range of events next week about the research and publication process and ensuring your research makes the biggest impact:

Higher Degree Research Students—Library Roundtable

Monday 2 September:  3.00pm—4.00pm The Snake Room 1b_1_89

A brief presentation will be followed by a Roundtable discussion between Bond HDR students and the Library. The session will provide an opportunity for HDR students to ask questions, provide feedback, and find out about the array of Library services available to them. 

Afternoon tea provided

The Process of Historical Research and Its Challenges

Tuesday 3 September:  11.00am—12noon HSM Lecture Theatre 3 5_3_35

Bond University has been fortunate to engage Emerita Professor Kay Saunders to write the history of this institution which will be published in 2014 to mark the University’s 25th anniversary. Professor Kay Saunders has an unwavering enthusiasm for history which has not waned over the course of her very successful career and as the author of numerous and diverse publications she has many stories to share and relish.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear an eminent historian speak frankly and with humour about history research and writing in the modern age. Morning tea provided.

Get Visible or Vanish: Using new media to raise your research profile - Panel Session 

Friday 6 September:  10.00am—11.00am University Centre Theatre 4 6_3_14

Should researchers use new media, including social media? What are the potential opportunities, pitfalls, and legal issues that arise from blogging, tweeting, creating online profiles etc.? What are altmetrics, and do they matter? And how does it all fit with the Bond University social media policy?

Come and be part of a lively discussion of all of the above, and share information with researchers who are active in these new digital spaces.

To be followed by light refreshments to encourage further informal discussions on the topic.


  1. Research Week is off to a fantastic start! I am very much looking forward to attending the panels, presentations and discussions to come - Chloe Watts

  2. Doreen Taylor: brilliant game, interesting and informative exercise but not so easy for the technologically challenged, and that would be me!

  3. Felicity Simpson - just had a great discussion on Professor Mortley's 'Platonic Love' presentation from this morning, quite interesting. Took me back to my university studies.
