I’ve re-re-done a past assignment today, a little bit more in-depth than when I did it the other day, I’ve literally used everything I can possibly think of that would help me to write a uni assignment.
I started with the unit handbook, which includes little questions that tend to give a brief background to the topic the assignment is on. I then moved onto Blackboard, where lecture slides are posted so you can access them whenever. Then I used the portal…what an absolute godsend!! Its brilliant for the E-Library links, e.g. Westlaw and Lexis Nexis, and for accessing the Library website too. The portal allows me to access E-Books and E-Journals and scan through books and journals on the internet, instead of having to check them out of the library.
I had a go at using google, but believe it or not they’re not specific…they have so many books and links none of them are as relevant as I need them to be.

I’m on my 3rd day now, I finished my induction this morning, last meeting with Mike Day.
Yesterday I spent the day looking at the portal and everything in it and google again.
I did the same today until I couldn’t find anything more to look at so I thought about giving ‘blogging’ another go! And it still doesn’t seem to be working…I can’t seem to write things about my day that I think people will want to read!!!
I hope that I’ll be given lots of work to do next week =) I much prefer being busy than not doing anything. I’ve kinda ran out of things to look at now! I was told to re-do a past assignment from uni by using the uni’s services and by using google too. I did a couple…well I say I did a couple, I researched stuff as if I was going to answer them, and I found that google was tonnes better in giving me more results in my searches (obviously) but in finding journal articles and e-books (the next BIG thing!) the portal was loads better because it has the uni library website and the e-library too.
But…I can’t think of anything else to do now!
I think I’ll go and make a cup of tea =)
