We run a number of digital skills training sessions each term. Our digital skills training sessions are open to all members of the University.
To book onto a session, follow its link below (you'll need to log in to the booking system). If a session you're interested in is full, sign up onto the waiting list - if we have enough interest in a session we may repeat it. You'll also find copies of our slides throughout the Skills Guides.
See the full list of Academic, Library & IT Support events.
We also run a number of specialised training sessions for staff and research postgraduates:
The Library's Research Support Team offer training to staff and postgraduate research students through the Research Excellence Training programme.

We have a broad range of content as part of our digital skills training programme, but each term we aim to include the following eight core sessions:
|Taking note of note-taking applications|
|"Where did I read that thing?": Reference management|
|How to read an article|
|: Improving your understanding of referencing by improving Wikipedia|
|Let's get critical I: Making sense of academic sources|
|Let's get critical II: Taking an academic approach to your reading|
|It's all in the presentation: saucing (and sourcing) up your slides|
|Making Word work!|

For Digital Wednesdays this term, we are running a series of Learn to code creative coding sessions that will introduce you to a variety of coding environments designed for the absolute beginner. Each tool been chosen for its ease-of-use, and because it will contribute to your overall understanding of coding.
You can come to just one session that interests you most, or all of them. You'll find them all on the training sessions list under the Digital Wednesdays banner. You can also find more about coding on our Coding Skills Guide.
The animated GIF above was created using Processing, one of the tools we'll be covering.
Why are the collections at the University of York so special? They are full of treasures, some old, some new, and some unexpected! Join expert Library and Archive staff to learn more about the wonderful, often remarkable, stories that the collections can tell.
For more information see the Wonders on Wednesday webpage.
Digital Wednesdays are a range of sessions on various themes outside of our core selection of training. They may have a specialist focus, or they may just be plain out there! The only essential is that they're on a topic that's remotely digital. While our main digital skills sessions are run by Library and IT staff, Digital Wednesdays are often put on by guest speakers from elsewhere within the University.
