HCS519 Research Skills Guide: Introduction


Welcome to the HCS519 Research Skills Guide.

This guide was made for you by a librarian from Charles Sturt University Library.

In your HCS519 subject outline, you have been provided with very clear instructions regarding what is required for each assessment: This guide is designed to help you achieve your research goals.

If you would like a refresher about other library skills, such as using Primo Search, sources of information, and more, head over to the SOC101 Research Skills Guide.

Most important of all, use your librarians! If you need help with anything library-related, get in touch with us. 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.

The Library has recorded several library skills demonstrations to help you locate resources for this subject. The skills covered will be very useful when completing both Assessment Item 1 & Assessment Item 2.

Evaluating your resources is a critical skill at university, and you'll find guidance on how use the CRAP test on our Evaluating information webpage.

Wishing you the best for the study ahead.
