The research required for your assignment work should go beyond the normal "Googling" process. A more comprehensive process is required which involves the fantastic database research facilities of the TSC library. If you don't know how to use them just ask others and practice using them. The codes are available on the bookmarks supplied – get one from me or the library (I can't put them up on this public blog!). Please note that when you have found the source you must citate in accordance with the Harvard system. Go to citation facility on the library link to create the correct citation for the source.

Here are the library research links we looked at today for you to play with and use. All your research is just a few clicks away!

1. LinksPlus: available to all TSC students using the password.

This is an amazing categorised data base of websites which have educational value for a huge range of issues/topics. LinksPlus is designed to guide research and save time for students, teachers and librarians. Go to, log in using the TSC User name and Password and start looking for sites for your issue/topic.

2. EBSCO Host databases

EBSCOhost databases and discovery technologies are the most-used, premium online information resources for tens of thousands of institutions worldwide, representing millions of end-users. It contains thousands of articles from magazines, journals etc on every imaginable topic/social issue.

EBSCO Host contains:

* Australia New Zealand database

* Australia New Zealand points of view

Again, the User ID and Password is on the bookmark.

Before next Monday use these links to research the gambling age and capital punishment issues ready for our discussion and debate on Monday.
