Using library resources

Using library resources

A comprehensive literature search means you access a wide range of material about the topic. This means you need to access a wide range of resources to find the information to read.  These may be in 'hard copy' (this means as a physical resource in a UoB or external library) or as digital resources (like ebooks, ejournals and high quality websites). 

This guide explains the main resources and services you will encounter during your studies.  The resources could include:

  • books
  • newspapers
  • journals
  • government and official reports
  • web resources
  • AV resources

The useful book Information Skills for Education Students gives an excellent overview of how to locate and integrate resources into your studies.  It is also available as an e-book here.

The Invisible Library tutorials also give an excellent overview on using resources effectively.
