Search and evaluate success is here to help you develop effective search and study methods.

Many of us use search engines on a daily basis, but finding trustworthy and relevant information can be difficult for academic research.

Our guidance will help you create and refine your searches and evaluate the resources you find, to produce well-evidenced academic projects. The skills you learn will continue to be useful throughout your life and work.
