As Chapter 1 stressed, one of the difficult but exciting aspects of adjusting to university life is the expectation from your tutors that you will do most of your learning independently. Rather than relying on your tutors to provide the majority of the resources, you will be asked to develop your own ideas in lectures, seminars, oral presentations and written assignments. You will also be expected to find materials to supplement your learning and guide your thinking; the two key places you will find these are your university library and the internet. These can both be quite overwhelming places in which to search for information, so you will need to develop strategies to find the information you require, as well as making sure the sources you consult are relevant, useful, and reliable.
