Self-help resources for the holiday closure

If you’re on the beach, outback or in the city these holidays, you still have Library help on hand!

If you need assistance during the Library closure times in the upcoming holiday period, check out some of the Library’s online support service options below:

  • Library Resource guides – Our Librarians write and regularly update Libguides to help CSU students with some of the challenges they may face when studying. We have over 100 different subject specific Research Skills Guides, and more than 70 Library Resource Guides for different areas of study. We also offer “how to” guides, such as using databasesEndNoteeBooks, and Primo Search, to help you learn about the many different services the Library offers, and how to take full advantage of them! We also have guides to support researchers and teaching staff, on topics such as Copyright at CSU, Where to Publish, and Researcher Impact.
  • The CSU Library YouTube channel – Navigating the scholarly world can be challenging and time-consuming, and the CSU Library‚Äôs videos can make this process faster and easier. The Library is a hub of advanced, up-to-date resources and support services for our students, so why not watch our short videos and learn how to find scholarly resources using Primo Search and the web. 
  • Library mobile apps – In addition to the other online resources that the library provides, there are also a number of mobile apps available for Android and iOS devices. Use these apps to keep up to date with the hottest scholarly articles in many different fields.
  • If you are researching, check out our Research webpage, for great information on Library services for researchers, the research cycle, planning and funding, gathering and analysing, publishing and disseminating, plus much more!
If you’re near a CSU campus, your 24 hour Learning Commons area will still be open, and the Port Macquarie and Dubbo collections will also be accessible.

All services resume on Tuesday 2nd January. If you need to let us know something over the break submit a web form and we will respond on the 2nd.

We hope you enjoy the holiday season this year!
