HCS406 Research Skills Guide: Home

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the HCS406 Research Skills Guide.

This guide was made for you by Charles Sturt University Library. It is designed to make the research process easier for your two major assessment tasks:

  • Assessment Item 1: Essay; and
  • Assessment Item 2: Report

These skills will also transfer to any other assessment task that requires you to search for information, so take note of what we do and think about how you could apply it to an assessment task for a different subject.

There are 5 activities included throughout this guide. Use these to practice the skills you have learnt:

Also, take a look at the SOC101 Research Skills Guide if you need a refresher about:

  • Sources of information
  • Search strategies
  • Evaluating information

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!
