Pure training sessions

Formal training is for research administrators/managers and staff with similar roles. Sessions will provide an overview of Pure and EBR, demonstrate common tasks and signpost to further online support materials.

To book in on one of these training sessions, please visit the Develop page (please note, the link only works if you are already logged in to Develop. Otherwise please search for "Pure An Introduction" in the catalogue). 

We have recreated some of the core content of our training sessions in the following videos (opens in Microsoft Stream):

Background to Pure at the University of Bristol

Linking work in Pure

Pure drop-ins

The team also run Pure drop-ins where PGRs, academic staff and research administrators can come along for one to one help. 

The drop-ins usually include a Pure representative along with other team members from RED or the Library. If there's a particular team within RED or the Library you would like to talk to (for example, REF or Open Access), please check with us in advance which teams are likely to be taking part in the drop-in on the day you're interested in. The drop-in is informal; no need to book.
