Finding and understanding information

Understanding information

Before you begin your assignments, you need to indentify what information you need, what information sources are available to you, when to use them and how to find them. These webpages will help you to get started.

Planning your search

Once you have worked out what the question is asking you and know the potential sources of information, you now need to plan your search. These pages will help you to understand the importance of planning your search and introduce you to using key words and other techniques to refine your searches.

Finding resources

You will need to know where to find information and resources. This section will show you how to use Library Search (the Library Catalogue) to find books, e-books, journal articles and more. Some of the key subject databases are also introduced.
