FIN530 Research Skills Guide: Introduction


Welcome to the FIN530 Research Skills Guide.

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

Focusing on:

  • Your Assessment tasks
  • Finding Information
  • Writing Resources

If you would like a refresher about other library skills, such as sources of information, using Primo and Google Scholar, evaluating information, and more, head over to the FIN531 Research Skills Guide.

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 there 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.

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

Wishing you the best for the study ahead.
