Welcome to the HCS102 Research Skills Guide.
This guide was made for you by a librarian from Charles Sturt University Library, and is designed to help you to develop research skills and strategies. This guide focuses on your three assessment items.
If you would like a refresher about other library skills, such as sources of information, using journal databases, evaluating information, and more, head over to the SOC101 Guide.
Most important of all, use your librarians! If you need help with anything library-related, get in touch with the library. Library staff are here to help; you aren't expected to know everything about research and the Library can help point you in the right direction.
Wishing you the best for the study ahead.
