Librarians from the State Library of Victoria have been putting together Library guides on various subject areas to help people with their research tasks.
It’s essentially a cheat sheet that guide you through the research process by wading through the array of resources available to you.
Here’s a sample of what’s been created:
1. Aboriginal people & the law
2. Adoption & forgotten Australians
4. Companies in Australia
5. Court cases in Australia
6. Early Australian census records
7. Finding Australian legislation
8. Finding book reviews
9. Finding music scores & popular songs
10. Finding poetry
There are 28 more guides on a range of topics but you can see the entire list here.
It’s commonplace for universities to have library guides, so do check them out for other subject areas, especially for senior students. Or you can create your own easily and quickly, in LibGuides.
Let us know if you’ve already created some LibGuides – we’d love to hear about them.
