You will need to use your university username and password to access these resources. Online resources can be found via:

  • the Library Search box on the Library home page enables you to search for print and online resources including full-text articles and e-books

  • the Databases tab at the top of the home page will allow you to search for journal articles in a particular subject area or for a specific journal article

Document Delivery

Although we can't send books overseas, we can send scanned copies of journal articles or chapters from books (subject to Australian copyright restrictions). There is no charge for scanned items.
