Start off by watching this video, which shows you how to find books and articles using the Library 'catalogue'.

Finding books on the topic of the ‘difficulties faced by University students’ using obvious keywords is not very successful. Here are some tips:

  • use 'college students' instead of 'university students' (US terminology in Library catalogues sometimes works better)
  • try adding 'social aspects' or 'social conditions' to your basic search term (these often get added by library cataloguers so are useful to search on)
  • try searching for "student adjustment" (this is jargon used by educational researchers)
