Text-books are very useful in learning new skills and processes. Books with the title of Study Skills, Literature Review and Research Methods can help developing information and research skills. Here is a couple of recommendations from your Librarian.

There is something for everyone. Whether you're looking for a complete training course or a quick answer on how to do something (for example, in Excel or on Twitter), there are over 4000 courses and over 150,000 tutorials with new releases every week.
