The Library is here to help you make the switch to learning online. Read on to find out how we can continue to support your learning over the next few months.


With our huge range of online resources, we’re perfectly positioned to help you adjust to the online learning environment. From our journal databases and eBooks through to our multimedia and video collections, you can find what you need online with Primo Search. Once you’ve entered your resource of choice in the search bar, select “Available Online” from the results page to narrow the results down to only show resources that are available online.

If you need help using any of our online resources, check out our eBooks and Database help Library Resource Guides, or watch some of our how-to videos, featured below!


As part of the move to online learning, you might come across different types of resources or means of access that you aren’t familiar with. That’s where our online tutorials, workshops and videos come in! From full-length Online Library Workshops to bite-sized YouTube videos, we’ve got the self-help resources you need to make the most of our online resources.
