Begin with Library Catalogue

When you get your first assignment, look for information on your topic in Library Catalogue – the Library’s search engine. Remember to log in first, so you can search all collections, place holds, add titles to an eShelf and renew your loans.

Some suggested terms to use

​TIP - If you are wanting to search all the derivatives of Nutrition such as nutrition, nutritional, nutritionally, or nutritionalist. Use truncation (e.g. nutrition*) to make sure you are finding everything.

Research

Depending on your assignment you may also need to use one of our specialised databases. Databases are extremely useful tools for researching specific information, recent information and scholarly articles.
