Ornithology Research Skills Guide: Home

Introduction

Welcome to the Ornithology Research Skills Guide.

This guide was made for you by a CSU Librarian. It is designed to make your research process easier.

We will cover the best way to:

  • Identify the information you will need for your assessment
  • Find relevant sources using the Library and the internet
  • Evaluate your results for suitability
  • Use writing and referencing resources for your assessment
  • Useful resources covers specialised ornithology resources, including a fun bird call quiz from the Melbourne Museum

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.

Best wishes,

Karen Klein
