This is a guide to recommended library resources, in various formats, you may need for the courses you will take in the academic upgrading programs. Browse through different types of resources using the tabs above e.g. if you are looking for journal articles, use the Articles & Databases tab to find relevant journal indexes in the field.
For general research help, go the Library's Research Process page. For help using the library catalogue, indexes, databases or other specific tools, see the Find Books and Find Articles pages.
Hint: Academic research is NOT like using Google or Google Scholar. The tools listed in this subject guide are scholarly resources and offer more complex search capabilities than you may be familiar with if you are a new user. Research is a skill like any other: the more you do it, the better you are!
If you have any questions or require assistance with any of the resources listed in this guide, please contact your designated librarian, Nathalie Zhou.
