HRM502 Research Skills Guide: Home

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the HRM502 Research Skills Guide.

This guide is designed to make your research process easier and covers the best way to:

  • Identify keywords and search strategies for your HRM502 assessments
  • Find relevant resources using the Library and the Internet
  • Evaluate your results for suitability

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 us.

Wishing you the best for the study ahead.

Lauren Brumby
Charles Sturt University Librarian
