Welcome to Your Library


To get the most from uni, you need to get the most from your library. The library website is a portal to a wealth of information and resources that will help you reach your academic goals.

One Search
One Search is like Google for the library’s resources. The library holds a large collection of print and electronic books, journal articles, newspaper articles, reports, theses, videos, web documents and much more.

Library Guides
We have library guides to help you find relevant resources for your discipline, research task and referencing style. Some useful guides to start with are:
· The InfoSkills Toolkit – a series of self-paced modules on different aspects of the research process such as Defining your Topic, Searching for Resources, Evaluating Resources and Referencing Sources
· The Writing Guide – help with academic reading, note-taking, academic writing and referencing
· The Referencing Guide – links to guides for the main referencing styles used at JCU
· Your Subject Guide – contains recommended databases, websites and more
