Teaching and Learning in Higher Education

Find some books

The Library holds the key writings on teaching and learning in higher education.

Search the Library catalogue by author, title, subject or keyword.

We have some ebooks in this field, accessible anywhere. Access with your USC username and password.

Google Books is another resource. Go to ADVANCED Search and choose the option: Limited preview and full view.

Use Endnote

Endnote can help you manage what you find. You can use Endnote creatively to store, identify and sort information. You can share your Endnote Library with colleagues or use the citation functionalities while you write.

  • save references straight from the databases
  • save references, abstracts, articles and urls
  • add your own notes
  • easily cite references while you are writing
  • organise your final reference list or bibliography  

More about Endnote

Understand different research methods

Use books to learn more about research methodologies in your discipline area.
Search the catalogue for research methodology (subject search) or for action research, qualitative research etc .

Sage publishes high quality academic books about research methodologies. 

Liaison Librarians

Every School has a designated Librarian who has a deeper understanding of the discipline area and protocols and expectations for students. An early meeting with your Liaison Librarian will introduce you to the most appropriate databases and how to use them; explain how to obtain resources we don't hold at USC; help us understand your area of research and give you some inside knowledge of where to find information. When you reach a dead end, sometimes we may be able to suggest places to look for more help and suggest different search terms and scope of searching.
