Can I use AI/ChatGPT?

Check the University's student guidance on the use of Generative AI, such as ChatGPT:

  • Using AI in academic work is a new and fast-changing area. Examples of usage that might be considered appropriate are planning an assignment, generating ideas for further investigation, or helping find additional search terms or keywords. For more information, see our Library guide on Using Generative AI in coursework or research.
  • Be aware that sometimes the information generated in AI tools is not correct! Treat AI-generated content with as much caution as materials from Google or Wikipedia and ensure you use it appropriately.

A quality resource to help you get started is:

fully searchable in EBSCO Discovery

Definitions, mind maps and quick summaries from leading online encyclopedias (better than Wikipedia!). Helps you find topic keywords you can use to search other Library resources.
