The Research Process

The following pages will provide you with everything you need to know when starting out on the research process:

Have you never used a library before?
Don't know how to start that 1st assignment?
Or are you working on your final year project?

We can help you get started by explaining terms used in researching, giving hints and tips on where to look, what to use, and everything in between!

Just click on the individual links below if you want information on that topic only, or start with the first one and work your way through all of them in order.
