Lesson 1: Where to search

Searching electronic databases is probably the most efficient way to access the necessary literature for your thesis. You will need to search in several different databases such as PubMed, Embase and PsycINFO, library catalogs and search engines such as Google Scholar and Google.

There may also be key sources of publications for your subject that are accessible electronically, such as collections of policy documents, standards, archive material, videos, and audio-recordings.

Guidance will be available via your own department or school and via the relevant Information Librarian.

In the following pages you will find help to find out which databases and search engines that are best suited for your project.
