JST311 Research Skills Guide: Home


Welcome to the JST311 Research Skills Guide.

This guide is designed to make your research process easier.

Focusing on:

  • Understanding your assessment task
  • Developing search strategies
  • Searching journal databases
  • Finding legislation and case law

If you would like a refresher about other library skills, such as sources of information, using Primo and Google Scholar, evaluating information, and more, head over to the JST301 Research Skills Guide.

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

Good luck with your studies.
