HIP100 Research Skills Guide: Home

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the HIP100 Research Skills Guide.

This guide was made for you by Karen Klein from CSU Library. It is designed to introduce you to finding and using scholarly resources, and  to help you with Assessment Item 3 (Essay) in HIP100.

YOU WILL ALSO NEED TO WORK THROUGH THIS GUIDE IN ORDER TO ANSWER THE 10 LIBRARY QUESTIONS IN ASSESSMENT ITEM 1 (ONLINE QUIZ).

It is structured in five main sections:

  • Getting Started: help with topic analysis, interpreting citations, identifying sources of information, and searching
  • Using Primo Search to find known items and information on a topic
  • Finding Journal Articles in journal databases, looking at CINAHL Plus with Full-Text and Google Scholar
  • Grey Literature and Australian Institute of Health and Welfare
  • Evaluating and using the information you have found for your assessment.

You can work through this guide at your own pace, or dip into it as needed. You can use the navigation structure (tabs and boxes), or the Next Page and Previous Page links.

If you need further assistance, please contact me, or contact the Library, as in the boxes at right.

Wishing you the best for your studies.
