IKC101 Library Research Skills Guide: Home


Welcome to the IKC101 Research Skills Guide.

This guide was made for you by CSU Library. 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 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.

Here is the IKC101 class recording to give you an overview of the library services and how to search for information.

I strongly recommend you watch the recording as it discusses services and resources the library offers to support students with research for their assessments.

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.
