Research Consultations

Research Consultations provide academic staff and graduate students with an opportunity to discuss their research-specific information needs with library professionals. Consultations are tailored to the needs and skill level of individuals.

Research Consultations can assist you with:

  • effective literature searching on your research topic to maximise the quality and appropriateness of results  
  • advanced and efficient use of specialist databases 
  • keeping up-to-date with the literature in your field (e.g. setting search, table of contents and citation alerts)
  • maximising your research impact
  • building your publishing ‘track record’
  • tracking citations to see ‘who is citing whom?’
  • structuring systematic reviews
  • efficient information management

Research Consultations are by appointment

  • Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm (other times by negotiation)     
  • We can visit you on campus
