Defining your information need

What are you trying to achieve? What is your topic about?

Determine the scope and scale of the information you require, such as:

  • Primary resources (original information), or:
  • Secondary resources (information that has been analysed or interpreted)
  • Peer-reviewed resources (resources that have been scrutinised by a panel of academic experts as part of the publishing process)
  • Timeframe (current or retrospective)
  • Geographic perspective (regional, national or global)

Our online database and journal search facilities help you locate journal articles, conference papers, reports and other information resources.
