The Building Construction and Property Services library subject guide provides recommendations for resources, and help finding them.  

  • LibrarySearch: This is the Library's multi-disciplinary collection of resources. It can be a good starting point for researching a topic. Log in to LibrarySearch for full access. 
  • See the Books page of this guide for LibrarySearch search tips.
  • Australian Standards Online and National Construction Codes are key resources for construction. These are not searchable through LibrarySearch, find them on the Standards and Codes page.
  • Learn from watching online videos on construction and interacting with online activities (from VET National toolboxes).
  • Library help box at the bottom of this page - if you need help with finding resources.
