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 a library from the Library. It is designed to make your research process for subjects INR501, INR502 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.

Together the playlist is a long recording! Make use of the chapters and return to it over the course of your studies as you build skills and confidence with searching for information

If this is your first session studying at Charles Sturt or you’ve returned to study after a break start with the first two recordings.
