Aimed at ECEC students this guide can be used by anyone with an interest in the area.

This guide will help you to find the books you need both print and electronic.  It also suggests electronic journals you may find useful, databases specific to your studies and various websites and news sources. Creating bibliographies and referencing are an essential part of your written assignments and I hope you find this section of value also.
