A. Online research

What’s the best way to use the Internet for your research? Here’s our quick guide:

A good place to start is by looking at a definition of your topic or your essay question and making a note of any keywords. Use those to do a web search and start reading through the results.

You may not  find what you need first time, but there are a lot of online resources to help you search effectively. For example, many search engines have ‘hints and tips’ pages which show you how to use them more efficiently and this can help you to refine your search.

It’s important to evaluate sites critically, so check who wrote the information and when.

One way to access reliable information is to subscribe to online journals to get more information on specific topics such as medicine, science etc. You can often search by keyword in back issues to find older articles that might be relevant.And remember, once you’ve found information you want to use, don’t just copy and paste it into your essay! You will need to rewrite the information in your own words. Be sure you keep a record of the source so you can reference it correctly in your work.

B. Problems and solutions

Here are some important ‘do’s and don’t’s for computer security:

Make sure you install anti-virus software. This will protect your computer from viruses. Some anti-virus products will also help to block spam.

Update your anti-virus program regularly to make sure you are always protected against the latest threats.

• Never click on a link or open an attachment in an email if you do not know the person who sent it.

• Only download free applications from companies that you trust. Some apps contain malware which could allow someone to hack into your computer and steal personal information such as passwords or bank details.

• Always back up your files and any documents (such as notes and assignments)you are working on. You can upload your files to a cloud storage system or use a memory stick. This means if your computer crashes and you lose your files, you will always have another copy.
