Introduction
 
Are you starting on your first research paper, course project or even doctoral dissertation? How are you going to find enough stuff? At first blush library research can seem to be a daunting task, especially if you are a new student with no knowledge of reference resources, online catalogue and article databases. Your experience in information seeking is limited to searching the Internet. But now as a research student, you are expected to know how to seek information and then weigh them.
This guide presents a step-by-step approach in conducting library research. Browse through the sections and learn how to use valuable resources to find information.

If you are a novice researcher, then this guide is for you. It aims to acquaint you with the methods and tools used in library research. It will introduce you to the concepts and logic inherent in the information seeking process. Once you understand the process, you should be able to evaluate and use the resources discovered. You should also be able to adapt the process to future enquiries.

Please note that depending on how familiar you are with the library's resources and type of research conducted, it may be necessary to modify or omit certain steps.
