We’d like to welcome you and introduce the Library. To get off to a great start this semester, you have to #LibraryIt.

A 2019 survey indicates that students who use the Library do well — 77% of them achieve a Distinction average or better in their results.*

3 online sites to help you get started using the Library:

1. Visit our Library Orientation page.

Find out the basics you need to know about using the Library. From searching for books and journals to borrowing and accessing reading lists for your units. From going on virtual library tours to finding study spaces. From identifying which library has the resources for your course to knowing when the libraries are open.

2. Make Research and Learning Online your go-to place for study skills.

Having the right skills and strategies for study, assignments, exams and research is crucial to your success at university. Our wide range of resources will help you achieve your goals. Do the Academic Integrity tutorials and the Citing and Referencing tutorials to understand and do the right thing when you cite sources in an assignment.

3. Find resources on the Library website.

From the homepage, you can readily access Search to find resources for your learning and research. You can also easily find the opening hours of our six libraries. There are quick links to more Resources & Skills, Services, and other helpful information.

Using the physical library

Our libraries are a shared space, so please consider other users. Let’s keep messy or smelly food out; only drinks with lid are allowed.

There is plenty of space to share, so please do not leave your belongings to save a desk or computer.

Important: If you’re studying in Caulfield or Matheson Library (our busiest libraries) and need to take a break, use a study break card and write down the time you left for your break. Leave the card on top of your belongings on the desk. Remember to take your valuable stuff with you. If you return within 30 minutes, you get to keep the desk otherwise, someone else is allowed to carefully move your belongings aside and use the desk.

Keep up to date with all things Library. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
