In this workshop you will learn to:  

  • unpack your assignment question 
  • find academic literature specific to your area of study 
  • use library databases to find the most suitable resource 
  • be strategic with your searches– get the best results from a search every time (no more browsing through 2 mill google results) 
  • get and STAY organised – keep track of your resources to easily refer back to them later.   


  • Intended for Coursework students; however, all UTS students and staff are welcome.
