How to Read a Paper - A Series of Articles from the BMJ
This series of articles by Trisha Greenhalgh was published in the BMJ in 1997 to assist readers in evaluating journal literature. The Library also has access to an more recent online book version:-
How to Read a Paper: The Basics of Evidence-Based Medicine / Trisha Greenhalgh; 5th ed.; 2014

What does critically evaluating the literature mean?
This is part of the PILOT: Postgraduate Information Literacy Online Training produced by Glasgow Caledonian University.

Exam Papers

The Library no longer provides access to copies of recent exam papers. While copies of exam papers are lodged with University of Adelaide Archives to facilitate access for researchers who are undertaking historical research, it is the responsibility of Schools to manage access by current students to contemporary papers. Archives would provide access for individual students only with approval from the relevant School.
