Health Postgraduate Introductory Library Modules: How to use

Health Postgraduate Library Modules


Introduction to Searching Skills

How to use these Modules

So, you’ve returned to study after a break. It’s been a while since you checked out the Library – everything looks different! 

That’s ok, that’s what we’re here for. This series of modules will get you back on track building your efficiency in finding needed information.

Knowing where to look and how to search digitally will make your Deakin research experience easier. 

You don’t need to do the whole series – jump in where you need to, skip over content, or go back and do it again. 


A few things you may notice as you work through these modules: 

To go back to the start of a whole module, just select a button from the boxes at the bottom of the page.

These module buttons will appear on every page.


It is helpful to think of searching as the sections below:

  Prepare     Run      Review       Revise     and Access 

These sections will be pointed out as you go.

You can select to go directly to one from the front pages of each module or you can also select the bars at the top when you want to revise a specific part.


You may also notice Alfie as we go through the modules.

She has just started a postgraduate health course and is going to work her way through the modules with you.
