This section has given information on how you might develop ways to locate, analyse and interpret information required for your course. The key messages included:

  • It's useful to know about, and be confident in using, both generic resources, like iDiscover, the library catalogue, and databases specific to your subject. 
  • Your subject and its discourse can often have an impact on how resources are perceived and valued, and the best ways to find and use them.
  • Developing good practices around how you use resources, keep track of them, take notes from them, is vital in order to effectively avoid plagiarism.
