Graduate Certificate in Industrial Relations RSG: Home


Welcome to the Graduate Certificate in Industrial Relations Research Skills Guide.

This guide was made for you by our Librarians. It is designed to make your research process for subjects INR501, INR502, INR517 and INR503 easier.

We will cover the best way to:

  • Plan your search for information
  • 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.

Accessing your textbook through the library

Good news!

Your textbook is available online through the library!

However our access to your textbook is limited. Follow the best practice in the video below to ensure you have access to what you need without disadvantaging other students in your subject.
