BMS105 Research Skills Guide: Home


Welcome to the BMS105 Library Research Skills Guide

This guide was made for you by Charles Sturt University Library and it is designed to make your research process easier.

We will cover the best way to:

  • Getting Started: Identify keywords and search strategies for your assessment
  • Find relevant resources using the Library and the Internet
  • Evaluate your results for suitability
  • Academic writing and referencing - Useful information and resources to writing 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.
