Now that Session 1 for 2021 has started, it’s a great time for us to let you know (or remind you) that the Library is jam-packed with resources and helpful guides to support you. We understand that resources and support are needed at any time, so our range of self-help resources might be just the thing to help you!

Online Library Workshops

If you’re new to Charles Sturt or just need to know more about our resources, why not sign up for an OLW? They’re a great way to learn about our services and get some handy tips and tricks for using our resources effectively. Our suite of OLW’s include:

  • Introduction Library Services
  • Finding Online Journal Articles
  • Using eBooks
  • Using Library Databases
  • Advanced Library Databases
  • EndNote
  • Promote Yourself Online
  • Protect Yourself Online

Our live OLW’s are very popular so be sure to register today. We also have pre-recorded OLW’s that you can access at any time as well.

Training Tutorials and Videos

Our range of tutorials and videos can be accessed anywhere, anytime. Do you want to learn:

  • how to request or renew a loan?
  • the tips for searching a particular database?
  • how to develop your research skills?

Our extensive collection of Youtube videos have been developed specifically to meet those needs. You can check out our full range here.

Library Resource Guides and Research Skills Guides

Our librarians have produced a number of guides to help you locate the most relevant subject-specific resources and save you time!

Our Library Resource Guides contain a collection of broad resources applicable to students studying in specific fields, and are made up of helpful resource collections, tools and information to help you with research, writing and referencing.

Our Research Skills Guides have been developed with a specific subject in mind, and often delve a bit deeper into the content of that subject. Your Lecturer will be sure to let you know if an RSG has been developed for your subject, but you can always type your subject code into the search tool to check for yourself.

A-Z Databases

Our extensive database section will help you find the best Library databases to assist with your research and assignments. You can find databases by subject area or by searching for a key area.
