This guide will help you to find and use all the available useful sources to help you get just what you need fast!

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 - When searching topics with two or more terms it is best to use phrase searching. By adding quote marks to your searches, such as "public health" you will be searching for those exact terms, next to one another, rather than randomly found throughout a text.​


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. Go to the database tab to search for articles.
