Before getting started it is recommended that you:
Before you start searching it is important to plan your search.
1. Define any terms you are unsure of. Use an introductory book, a dictionary such as the Macquarie or the Oxford English Dictionary, an encyclopedia, handbook or website.
2. Identify main concepts in your topics. These will help you form your searches. For example, for the topic: "Mathematics Education and Aboriginal Students in Australia"
3. Identify any synonyms or similar keywords for each main concept. You may find it helpful to put these in a table.

Q: If I have a list of references in EndNote can I import it into a LaTeX reference list?
A: Yes, you can import EndNote references into LaTeX reference list. LaTeX is a document preparation system for high-quality typesetting. It is most often used for medium to large technical or scientific documents but it can be used for almost any form of publishing. It is typically used for typesetting of complex mathematical formulas, advanced typesetting of mathematics with AMS-LaTeX, and automatic generation of bibliographies and indexes.
Watch 'Using EndNote Records with LaTeX' or try one of these:
Your assignment requires your to reference your sources in the Harvard UniSA style. Use the Referencing Roadmap to learn how to reference different sources correctly.
For more help with this assignment please contact Ask the Library or the Student Engagement Unit.
The Library catalogue is a good place to start your search. You can use it to find journal articles, papers, book chapters, and reports.
To search in the Library catalogue:
1. Type your main concepts into the search box.
2. Broaden your search by adding synonyms using the connector OR.
3. Apply filters by using the 'Tweak my results' menu (left side).

This will allow you to search using phrases, and also limit your search to certain domains like .edu
Scholarly or academic is an umbrella term for several different kinds of authoritative and credible sources including peer reviewed articles, some books and also resources known as ‘grey literature’.
You will find a range of material which need to be assessed to see if it is actually useful to include. The following criteria will help you make decisions about the material that you are trying to assess.
The CRAAP Test was developed by the Meriam Library at California State University to help you evaluate the information you find. This information has been adapted from the Evaluating Information - Applying the CRAAP Test by California State University
