Getting started with library research

Dulcie Hollyock Room, Ground floor, Baillieu Library


This session is aimed at newly-enrolled graduate students beginning their research journey (i.e., Research Masters & PhD candidates). This interactive workshop will give you an overview of resources at the University of Melbourne Library – from search engines and special collections, to personalised consultations – and help you find research databases in your subject area. The session will provide an introduction to structuring successful search strategies and demonstrate the use of major citation databases, plus tips for keeping your literature search up-to-date. Please bring your own laptop.
