Searching Literature

Updated tools for learning searching literature2 from paulanottingham

Searching literature is so much easier than it used to be with Summon. Contact Adam Edwards our librarian or one of your adviser if you can't crack the system - sign into MyUniHub - see directions in the slideshare.


  1. Thanks for this Paula.

    I am still finding literature a struggle, but am having better search results with your advice, it just deciding what is most relevant and useful. I am also going to start thinking outside the box, looking at education rather than just dance education to see if I can find relevant links. It so easy to get sucked into searching and searching, in the hope of finding more and better sources without making decisions... I must remember time management!


  2. A good trick is also to look at the bibliographies of good sources - I agree - look in to education literature for principles that might apply to the dance teaching. Inclusion also has definitions that might need to be unpacked - in looking at educational literature I have found varied definitions of inclusive practice. Also look for sources that help you understand the issues that have emerged from your practitioner research. Bw
