When working on assignments, it is likely you will need to look beyond your unit reading list for information on your topic. To help you with finding the resources you need, this guide is divided into these categories:

CameraMedia and audio / visual

Pens and paperDatabases

You can use Library Search by using keywords relevant to your topic.  In Library Search you will find a range of resources, including books, journal articles, audio materials and video.


You can use subject databases to carry out thorough searches on your topic. Databases index journals and other sources of information, meaning you may search across all these indexed sources at once.
