Doctoral Student Guide

A research skill guide for doctoral students

This Guide

This guide is a resource for all areas of research - what different materials are, how to read them, how to effectively search, types of research, and more. It will help guide you through your doctoral program from start to finish. Please remember to reach out to me, the library faculty and your professors with any and all research queries!
