The scope of the literature search and type of information required will depend on the requirements of the assignment.
ECU WorldSearch is a search engine that allows you to search the Library's collections of books (print and online), most online journal articles and other resources. You can enter you keywords/search terms into the search box provided. As this is part of a world catalogue, you need to select Edith Cowan University at the top of the left hand side bar once you've entered your search.
If you wish you can also use the Advanced search option to set up a precise search, using specific search fields.
From your search results you can link directly to the full text of journal articles and ebooks or to print books and other resources on the shelves. Access ECU WorldSearch from the Library Homepage. Use your normal ECU login, when prompted, to link to online resources.
Words entered into the search box will be automatically combined with AND. e.g. occupational health safety will search all of those words combined (occupational AND health AND safety).
Phrase search: Use quotes to search for words as a phrase. e.g. "Occupational health".
Truncation symbol * can be used to search all forms of the word. e.g. industr* will search industry, industries, industrial
Use the limit options in the left hand side bar to refine your search, for example:
Format: options to limit to Books, eBooks, journal articles, peer reviewed (journal articles)
Year of publication: select a date range or use the limits provided (e.g. last 5 years, 10 years)
Topic: options to further refine the search by topic
