Now that you're at University you need to develop good information skills so that you can find relevant high quality academic information to use confidently in assignments. Good information skills will help you to write better assignments, get good grades, a good degree, and then a good job! These are skills that you will be able to use throughout your working life, so it's very important that you attend your timetabled library sessions and complete the tasks that you will be given as part of your course, so that we can give you feedback on how you're doing and help you with any problems you might have.

You will also find many useful resources, such as guides on avoiding plagiarism, and on evaluating the information you find, within core units at each level: Foundations to Psychology; Biological & Cognitive Psychology; and Research Dissertation.

These pages will help you identify the resources you can use to find the best information for the task in hand. You will find evaluative descriptions of each resource, hints and tips on how to search for information and guidance on where you can go to get further help and advice.

If you need help with researching an assignment or your dissertation, please drop me an email at the address below and we can arrange an appointment.
