CUS401 Research Skills Guide: Home


Welcome to the CUS401 Research Skills Guide.

This guide is designed to make your research process easier with a focus on:

  • Identifying what you need
  • Searching Journal databases
  • Searching the web for grey literature
  • Evaluating information
  • Writing and referencing

If you would like a refresher about other library skills, such as sources of information, using Primo and Google Scholar and more, head over to the CUS101 Research Skills Guide.

Most important of all, use your librarians! If you need help with anything library or research related, get in touch with the library, or you can e-mail me directly

Wishing you the best for the study ahead.
