This is a very practical and useful course for anyone embarking on research.

Overall, very informative and enjoyable, the day flew!

I really enjoyed the course – very useful and presenters were excellent, engaging and enthusiastic.

Perfect content, presentations so useful to keep and explore. Course had a lovely pace and comfortable dynamic.

This course has made me think about creating an effective Social Media Policy for my workplace – I now have more tools to make it more effective.

Quality of McGrath Barrett courses is always good – would like to attend more.

A fantastic course.

The course covered a wide range of resources all of which can be used for the wide range of queries I get in a public library.

I really enjoyed the role-play, very informative.

Very professional and friendly presentation, very enjoyable. Would recommend to other colleagues.

This course was well thought out and expertly delivered. I will be checking out other courses and suggesting to our T+D officer/committee that McGrath Barrett be brought in for in house training.

Very informative course with useful advice: the practical exercises were very useful to put what was said into practice.

This course was unbelievably good. By far the most practical and informative course I have done this year – no improvements needed!

Very good, interesting course. The two presenters know their subject, which imparts confidence to the people doing the course.

The interactive sections were very important. It was great to interact with librarians from such a range of different sectors.

A fantastic course.

Liked being asked to put what you learnt into practice & doing the exercises.

My second course with M + B – this was as good as, if not better!

One of the best I have been on in terms of relevance and practicality.

Excellent day course: great for starting social networking.
