We aim to walk your academic journey with you from orientation until your final draft has been accepted. This will be done by one on one consultations set up by your librarian.
We can assist you showing you how to find the most relevant articles for your research topic on our Databases and also getting started with our referencing tools such as Mendeley and Refworks.
