INF461 Research Skills Guide: Getting Started

Welcome to your research skills guide

Welcome to the INF461 Research Skills Guide. The guide is designed to help you on your research journey.

In it, we have provided some useful resources for you to access while studying. We will also 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.

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.
