Here's the description of the original webinar:
Research Toolkit Series
The Research Unit would like to introduce a new Research Toolkit series. The purpose of this series is to introduce key research tools that can enhance your regular careers work, from how to gather information for resources, to surveying your students about the service. Through the series of 9 webinars, we will guide you through the key phases of research, and give tips and tricks on how to best utilise your data, and how you can present findings to a range of audiences.
This is the 1st webinar within the sereis.
In this session we will reflect on how academic journal articles could be useful to you in your work. We will look at how to identify the most useful journals and the most relevant articles for your needs, and explore the use of academic search engines to quickly access information.
In this interactive webinar we will explore the following questions:
How can you find and read a relevant research paper?
When you have limited time how might academic journal article search engines help you in your research work?
How can you identify the most useful journals and papers relevant to your work?
What are the quick ways to source key information from the article?
How can you avoid common and time-consuming mistakes?
The session is aimed at careers and employability professionals whom are interested in learning how to effectively and efficiently inform their practice through greater awareness of relevant research.

their ability to source and use relevant academic journal articles to inform their work.
