March 01 2016 11:27 PM

Qatar National Library (QNL), a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), will host throughout March a range of enriching research-focused events and workshops.
“The various research workshops are intended to ensure that members of the community are provided with the necessary training to be able to utilise the resources effectively for their individual research needs,” Saadi al-Said, QNL’s director of administration and planning.
Giving undergraduates the opportunity to improve their research skills, ‘Conducting Research’ workshop will be held tomorrow for the second time to meet popular demand of university students and the academic community. The second session is in April.
On March 29 at the HBKU Student Centre, QNL will hold a research seminar titled “How to Publish in Academia”, which will help researchers develop their skills of writing research papers and offer advice on how to get academic work published.
In addition to the informative research workshops in March, QNL will organise numerous activities aimed at engaging the wider community.
This month’s book discussion will feature a book titled, ‘I Declare Love’ by Qatari author, Wedad al-Kuwari. Comprised of a series of articles on education and self-learning, the book highlights al-Kuwari’s deep love of reading and how being a voracious reader has benefited her during different life events.  To be conducted in Arabic, the discussion will take place on March 9 in the TV Lounge at HBKU Student Centre.
The Music Day workshop on March 16 will give members of the public an insight into the history of music and the valuable online music databases offered by QNL, such as the International Index to Music and the Music & Performing Arts databases.
