Literature Searching

Best practice in finding information for University course work.

This session is particularly suitable for final year undergraduates and taught postgraduate students.

Have you been told to find more suitable "academic" or "peer-reviewed" material to use in your assignments? Do you have to undertake a literature review? Have you tried searching for good information online (i.e. you've Googled it) but think there must be better information out there? If you still haven't found what you're looking for, then this NON-SUBJECT SPECIFIC session outlines good practice to help you get the authoritative information you need.
