Library Refresher

Yesterday in our professional practice session, Martha Lee, the librarian for CSAD, reminded us of ways to research and access information and images.

She showed us how to search effectively to get better results by using “and” and “or” which narrow down results. She also reminded us of how to access databases, and gave us some useful names of image databases which could be really helpful, such as the V&A and The British Library. Another useful site is Fame, a database of lots of companies and their contact details.

This refresher was really helpful as it reminded me of all the resources that are available to me, which will be very helpful.
