To succeed in your studies you’ll be using a range of library services and spending your time reading and questioning various types of information resources such as books, journal articles and data sets. Finding them and using them effectively is the focus here.
"I find there’s so much that you could potentially be reading or looking into... pick up on the main points and make sure you understand them well... question what you are reading, as opposed to just passively taking it in and agreeing with whatever points are being made.” - Dasha Kurzunina, UG student
