EEP417 Research Skills Guide: Home

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the EEP417 Research Skills Guide.

It is designed to make your research process easier.

We will cover the best way to:

  • Identify keywords and search strategies for your assessment
  • Find relevant resources using the Library and the Internet
  • Evaluate your results for suitability
  • Use the information in your assessment

You can use this guide any way you like; read it front to back or dip in and out as required. I recommend taking a few minutes to familiarise yourself with the content so you know what's in here in case you find yourself stuck later on.

Keep in mind that research is not a linear process and may not always follow a particular order of steps.

There are 5 activities included throughout this guide, use these to practice the skills you have learnt:

We have also made an EEP417 class recording for you to give you an overview of the library services and how to search for information.

Most important of all, use your librarians! If you need help with anything library or research related, please get in touch with the library.

Wishing you the best for the study ahead.
