This page will help you get more out of your Library resources for your assignments, projects and dissertations in Pharmacy

It is important to understand the kind of information you need when researching for your assignment.  For example you may want to start by finding definitions or background information. Alternatively you may be seeking statistics or research findings. Once you have decided what type of information you need you can use the Ocean of Information to help you to understand the value of different sources and how to access them.

Evaluating your sources is also crucial when writing a piece of academic work - the Evaluating information page on the library website will guide you through this process
