Solid proficiency in the use of multiple digital information resources is one of the critical skills required of today’s scholars. In this session, we’ll build upon the foundations of Digital Research and propel your skills to the next level. You’ll focus how to analyse a topic and formulate effective research strategies; improve your search syntax and terminology; use Boolean operators, wildcards and truncators; and critically evaluate the information sources you discover.
In this workshop, build upon the foundations of Digital Research through an informal assessment of your information needs and evaluation of potential sources of discipline-based materials across the information landscape. Discover effective search strategies, how to keep up to date with research in your field and quick activities to aid in information seeking for the formation of a research question. Explore databases and scholarly resources within the ANU Library collection to embark on information gathering for your literature review.
