Information skills & tools

Have you ever wanted to read the mind of a librarian to find useful information in your subject area?

Library Research Guides are almost as good. The librarians compile guides on topics to share their knowledge of key information sources and can be a great starting point for your research. Other guides focus on topics such as copyright, getting started with ebooks, evaluating free Internet resources and research practices such as data management.

When using the information found in books, on the web or from other sources in your assignment, you need to reference the sources correctly to:

  • Avoid plagiarism
  • Support an argument by referring to an authoritative source
  • Allow the reader to find and check a source
