A library guide for students and staff in nursing and midwifery

Getting started with research

Research can be daunting, but luckily the amazing University of Newcastle Library staff are available to help wherever possible!

We can help you with your research, from your very first assignment all the way through to academic research. We can help you understand what a database is and help you learn how to evaluate your resources properly. We can answer your referencing questions and we can point you in the direction to get help with your academic writing.

The library has sleep pods and laptops and study spaces, and we are here to help you locate all sorts of stuff to help you succeed in your university career. We're glad you're here, and now we are here to help!!

Introduction to your library

Where to from here?

This page is a great place to begin your research, but there is plenty more tools available to you. This page is sitting inside a broader Subject Resource Guide that has been curated for Nursing and Midwifery students, full of curated resources for you.

You can also explore the library, both the physical and online spaces. The library exists to support you, and the library staff will be able to guide you toward whatever you need, whether you are looking for a journal article, or a good place to study.

Library Chat

Library Chat is a fantastic resource. If the green light is on, then there is a library staff member monitoring the chat keen to help!!
