Each week recent purchases are placed on the new book displays inside the library, and eBooks are made immediately available to use. You can view and subscribe to the New Library Books list online. For instructions on how to borrow an eBook by downloading it; check out our eBook LibGuide. Some eBooks require logging in with your JCU username and password; additional software will need to be installed to download books to a digital bookshelf. Most eBooks can be read online without downloading extra software.

A title of interest this week is:

Participatory Research with Children and Young People by Susan Groundwater-Smith, Sue Dockett, Dorothy Bottrell.
Call Number: 300.723 GRO

An extract from the publisher's website states:

This book sets out a clear framework for conducting participatory research with children and young people within a discussion of the rights of the child. Through extensive case studies and a close review of contemporary literature, in relation to early childhood through to late adolescence, the book serves as a critical guide to issues in participative research for students and researchers.

The book includes chapters on:
  • Designing your research project
  • Ethical considerations 
  • Innovative methods
