Research Guides

The library provides access to numerous credible resources not freely available on the web. Select an appropriate library search tool for the type of resource you require.

Library based search tools are not as forgiving as Google with what you enter. If you want relevant results, be strategic with the keywords you use. There are also a number of search techniques to retrieve better results.

When obtaining results, evaluate and refine them according to how well they fit your information need.

Based on how the information you find contributes to your understanding, you may end up revising your initial search or with a new information need to search for.

For further help please ask at the library desk or you can contact our Information and Learning Technologies Librarian
