Transcript of Researching for your assignment-pre workshop material

Deakin University Library
Researching for your assignment
Where to start in your search for quality information:
To make searching even easier the Library has a single search box. It's very similar to common search engines such as Google.
The Library catalogue
Down the left hand side of your results screen you have options to further refine your searching. These include limiting your results to a:
- specific source types (journals, book, e-books, DVD's, etc),
- campus location (Geelong, Melbourne, etc.)
- range of years of publication (useful if you only want current information)
- and more...


Using limiters such as these can reduce the amount of time you spend sifting through the results to find resources for your assignments.
