Essential Academic Skills: Searching Online
In this session you will be shown how to conduct independent research to find information sources beyond your reading list. We'll share tips for effective searching using our discovery tool 'Library Search' and introduce you to a range of databases to find books, journal articles and audio-visual material relevant to your work. We will also consider the importance of multiple perspectives and reflect on criteria that can be used to evaluate information.
By the end of the session you will be able to:
- Identify suitable information sources for your searching
