Dictionaries and encyclopedias are a good starting point when researching a topic as they provide definitions, explanations or general overviews.
The Curriculum Collection is a special collection within the UWS Library comprised of easy books; junior fiction; classroom resources; and syllabus, support and policy documents.
Curriculum Collections are located at the Penrith (Ward) and Bankstown campus libraries.
Journal articles often provide the most current and authoritative
research on a topic. The Library subscribes to databases to provide you
access to these sources which are usually not freely available via the
World Wide Web. You can search databases on your chosen topic and
locate fulltext articles, abstracts of articles or citations. Check the
UWS catalogue by journal title if the database does not give you the
fulltext or a linkage to fulltext elsewhere. A comprehensive listing of
databases is provided on the main e-resources page
