Access to good academic Information (for reports and assignments) poses many challenges. Information can come from many different places...books, journals, magazines, news articles, websites and social media to name a few.

It's good practice to include a variety of information sources when you are gathering information for an assignment. This shows that you have researched your topic thoroughly and have evidence to support your writing.

A good start is to find some information from

  • books
  • journals or magazine articles
  • websites

And remember, don't rely on one source only.
