ACC384 Research Skills Guide: Introduction

Important note

From 2021 there is a new Business Studies Research Skills Guide for the Bachelor of Business Studies offshore pathway program. You'll find many library resources there to help you in your studies with Charles Sturt, including the subjects ACC384, FIN381, FIN385MGT382 and MGT387. The guide below isn't being updated after 2020.


Welcome to the ACC384 Research Skills Guide.

This guide was made for you by a Librarian from Charles Sturt University Library. It is designed to make your research process easier.

We will cover the best way to:

  • Plan your search strategy and find keywords for your assessment topic, focusing on assessment item 2
  • Find scholarly information using Primo Search and journal databases including how to find specific Company information (there is a demonstration here)
  • Evaluate information that you have found
  • Write your report using the information that you have found

Remember that research may not always follow a particular order of steps. Dip in and out of this guide, as you need to, throughout your studies.

Here is a brief video on using eBooks and Library Databases.

If you need help with anything library or research related, contact the library.

Wishing you well for the study ahead.
