Explore this guide to learn more about the services, support and resources the library has to offer both new and returning students.

Textbooks

The first question most keen new students often ask is "Where can I get my textbooks?"

Not all subjects have prescribed textbooks, so look at your subject outline to check. Subject outlines can be found in your subject's iLearn site or on the website

Copies of textbooks will be available to borrow from the Library 'Reserve Collection', and many textbooks have eBook access through the Library. Explore the Library Search page on this guide to learn all about finding and borrowing books.

If you wish to purchase your textbooks, you can use the "Check purchase options" link in the book record in Library Search to compare availability and prices from a range of booksellers in Booko. Students studying remotely can change the region of the Booko website to see availability from local retailers.

If you are buying second-hand textbooks, please ensure you are getting the correct edition and title, as you don't want to pay for a book that is not currently being used.

 

 

You can find and access the library copies of your textbook through your subject's Resource List. Watch the video below to learn about your Resource Lists. The first 1 minute and 15 seconds would be the most relevant if you are a new student trying to find your textbook.
