Literature Search Service

Consult your Tutorial letter 101 for a list of recommended books and e-Reserve articles for your course. If you need additional information for your assignment you can request a literature search from us.

We will be unable to provide this service if the literature search forms part of your assessment.

To compile the literature search a number of electronic databases are consulted to provide you with an overview of the literature written on your topic. The search results will include citationsabstracts, and links to full-text articles where available.
