Making your research easier

reearchThe Kenyatta University Library has provided tools that will make every stage of your research work easier and less time consuming. We will be telling you about these tools in subsequent posts. Let us start with the most basic. Current and up to date online books and journals are available here. Each of the database gives you information on the subject coverage. You can opt to search all the online resources simultaneously on this link. They are accessible from any location. If you are accessing the e-books and e-journals from outside the university network, click here and follow the simple instructions on the platform. In the next write up we will introduce you to tools that help you in citing and referencing.
