PHC190 Research Skills Guide: Home


Welcome to the PHC190 Research Skills Guide.

This guide was made for you by Librarians from the Charles Sturt Library. It is designed to make your research process easier.

We will cover the best way to:

  • Identify keywords and search strategies for your assessment
  • 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, please contact the library.

Wishing you the best for the study ahead.
