Record and Publish a Seminar about your Latest Research using Cassyni

Giving a seminar is a great way to enhance the accessibility, reach and impact of your research, and promote your credentials as a researcher, helping you stand out in an increasingly competitive job market. This is why the Graduate School has partnered with Cassyni to offer all PhD students and Postdocs the opportunity to record and publish seminars about their latest research papers.

The service is currently free through to the end of May, and will result in a published seminar recording with a DOI that can be shared widely with colleagues, and embedded on your homepage and in your social media feeds. Seminars will also be indexed in Cassyni Discover, the world’s largest index of academic seminars, and by Google.

Here are some examples of recent seminars published on Cassyni:

Full details of how to use the service are available here:

Borrow recreational audiobooks and e-books with Libby

Borrow recreational audiobooks and e-books to read on your phone or tablet using the Libby app by OverDrive.

Sign in to OverDrive for access to nearly 600 audiobooks and e-books including bestsellers, prize-winning fiction, and titles in German, Spanish and French.

Download the Libby app to borrow up to 10 titles for 14 days. Titles expire automatically at the end of the loan period so you do not have to return them.

If someone else has borrowed the title you want, just place a hold on it and the service will let you know when it’s available.

You can also use ‘Recommend to library’ to suggest additional titles to purchase. This feature is available in OverDrive (coming soon to Libby).

Libby is only available to Imperial staff and students.
