  Introduction

Use encyclopedias on the REFERENCE RESOURCES page to locate background information about your topic and use dictionaries to find definitions or explanations of words and concepts. 

Start your search for BOOKS  in the Fisher Library.  The library has some books that may be useful but you need to get books from other libraries. This page tells you how to search other libraries for books  and how to organise an inter-library loan. You may also benefit from joining and using the resources of other libraries. Details are on this page.

Use the ARTICLES IN ONLINE DATABASES & THE STATE LIBRARY PAGE  page to locate journal articles. Journal articles are useful for two reasons. Firstly, they are usually the first place that research is published so they are a good source of current information. Secondly, as journal articles are relatively short  they are likely to be more specific than a book.   

WEBSITES  Use Google Scholar to search for academic books, working papers and journal articles as a supplement to searching the databases on the Articles in Databases page.

 

                                                               ----------------------------------------------------------

If you find a citation or an abstract to a journal article on either a database or Google Scholar and you want to see the full text of the article, ask a librarian and we will try to access it for you.

 For further assistance ask the library staff in the Fisher Library. Also use the Ask a Librarian services listed at the bottom of this page.
