Selected resources

When starting postgraduate research it is important to understand the task you are beginning. You will need to establish your research topic and take time to identify the most appropriate resources. The resources shown on these pages will take you through the processes you need to understand to succeed in your study.

Don't forget to also check the page in this Psychology guide called Citing your sources to learn how to record details of all resources correctly. Take note of the bibliographical details for all sources that you use, particularly the page numbers for quotations - it is often very difficult to find these again once you close the book (particularly if you are not sure which book it was ...!).

Most of these books are available for loan - check the USP Laucala library catalogue to confirm their availability.
