Don't forget that information seeking and literature search for your assignment is an iterative process, which is to say that you adapt and repeat searches as you gain new knowledge and a better insight into the problem
Do not avoid your information search tasks, set aside some time for this as a part of the writing process.
Use your lecturer, supervisor or librarian for help and clarification.
Please be targeted and systematic - make a search strategy.
Search in different ways for different purposes: For inspiration, for facts, for documentation or for perspective-setting.
Always remember to state your sources.
Always check your academic rules and regulations for special requirements when handling sources.
Be consistent in your source references: Write them in the same way every time
Take a critical approach to your sources: Always assess the credibility and usefulness
