Where to start?
Use the Catalogue TAB to find resources such as books, exam papers, specific journals and audio-visual items. Use the A-Z databases/Journals TAB to identify and locate individual articles in journals. Use the LibSearch TAB to perform a Google like search across ALL Library resources, including journal articles.
Keywords and descriptors - when searching catalogues and databases, be ready to use a wide range of terms, both general and precise, and in combinations. For example:
|literacy||special education||constructivism||curriculum and secondary||classroom management|
|gifted children||learning disabilities||thinking skills||Victorian Certificate of Education||educational psychology|
If your search returns too many items, use narrower or combinations of terms. If you do not find enough, try broader terms. The thesauri listed below can help your find broader, narrower and related terms.
