Support for Melbourne Polytechnic offshore partners: Research and further help

This guide provides Library services and resources information for Melbourne Polytechnic's offshore partners.

Resources from other libraries

While Melbourne Polytechnic Library subscribes to many databases featuring high-quality scholarly information, sometimes the article you need isn't available from the Library's sources.  

But there may be a solution!

The Library can request copies of items including articles, conference papers and reports from other Australian libraries on your behalf.  This service is free of charge to Melbourne Polytechnic staff and students.

Simply complete the article request form and the item will be emailed to you if available.


How to search for information

Knowing where to find quality information for your assessments, and how to identify the most appropriate sources of information, are important when starting your assessment.   The Library's guide on Research Fundamentals provides guidance on 

- understanding your topic

- evaluation information sources

- responding to different assignment types

- selecting the right resources for your assessment
