This guide will assist you to locate relevant resources for your study and research.  It will give you some guidance about using information sources, and each source's relevance.

Different resources are useful for finding different types of information.  Scholarly articles are best for recently published research, and books and reference material are good for developing your underlying knowledge of a discipline. Developing a basic knowledge of your topic first could help you to understand articles more easily.
