Library lowdown

Research cycle

This month we are starting a series about the Research tab on the Library homepage.  This page was redesigned following feedback from researchers, HDR students and academics:

The content on the page is organised in accord with the traditional Research Cycle, with links to Library support for each element of the research cycle.

The first in our series is:

Design & discover

This is the section to get you started.  Here you will find information about Conducting your literature review, the library guide we looked at last time. You will also find a link to access all the information sources you will need, including PRIMO, Databases and other helpful sources.  There is also information on finding and accessing theses; including how to search for both CSU and other University items. You will also find a link to the Library’s bibliographic management software, EndNote.  Of course you will also find information about different types of Research consultation and training services offered by your friendly Library Faculty Liaison team as well.  These can include online sessions offered through the Research Office PD Calendar, and are detailed below, as well as other self-help tutorials and training options.
