My Learning Essentials

Planning ahead: making your search work
Searching for information is easy. Finding a manageable number of high-quality, relevant results can be more difficult. This resource explores the process of planning a search to ensure that you get the best results for your work. It also highlights techniques you can use to refine your searches if you don’t get the results you expect first time around.

Knowing where to look: your search toolkit
There are so many places to search for information to include in your academic work, it can often be difficult to know where to start. To enable you to make an informed choice when selecting where to search for information, this resource explores Google, Google Scholar, subject databases and Library Search, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses.

View all workshops and online resources in this area on the My Learning Essentials webpages.
