Human Resources & Organisational Behaviour: Library Resources

This guide will help you find key human resources and organisational behaviour information resources for your academic study and research.

If you have any questions, please contact your Academic Services Librarian, Rachael Hartiss (see details, below).

As your Academic Services Librarian, I work to make sure that the resources you need from the Library are in place to support your learning. I can help you find information for your assignments and projects and provide training in searching specific resources. You can make a one-to-one appointment with me or attend the general workshops we run throughout the year.
