Library collections

The Library has a vast array of resources, including books, journals, newspapers, videos, images, and more. Different pathways are on offer to aid you in locating resources.

  1. LibrarySearch - You can use LibrarySearch to find most Library-subscribed material - it is particularly useful for links to books and journal articles.
  2. Subject guides - Not all Library subscribed resources appear individually in LibrarySearch. For more comprehensive searching use relevant full-text databases. Refer to the database listings in the discipline-specific Subject Guides.
  3. CollectionsExplore our collections to see what we have.

Follow instructions under Tools for linking to resources to enable both on and off-campus access to learning material.

Open educational resources (OER)

OER are freely accessible and openly licensed teaching and learning materials. Depending on the licence applied, they can always be freely shared, and may often be freely revised and remixed.

OER cover a wide range of materials: textbooks, lecture notes, tests or exams, curricula, projects, assignments, syllabi, audio, video, simulations, animation and more.
