The aim of this guide is to help geomatics students find information in the library and its electronic resources.
It is not intended to be comprehensive, but rather a starting point for your research.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me for further assistance.
Before you begin searching for information, you should thoroughly understand the topic you are researching.
Technical dictionaries will provide definitions of unfamiliar terms, while encyclopaedias give explanations and succinct overviews of topics. Engineering handbooks provide a wealth of basic information and specific data for the fields they cover. In the Reference Books tab of this guide, you will find information about some of the reference materials available in the Main Library.
The Finding Books and Finding Journals tabs introduce you to ALEPH (the Libraries' online catalogue) and our e-Journal Portal respectively. These are the tools you need to find books and journals in the Libraries. The dropdown menus on these tabs take you to the slideshows: How to find a book and How to find a journal.
