What is an eBook?
An eBook is an electronic book. It contains images and text just like a physical book, however it is displayed, used and read on a PC, tablet or mobile device.
Our eBook collection has books on business, nursing, travel and more. Please let us know what topics or books you would like to see added to our eBook library.
The library is proud to offer you access to the National Construction Code and Standards Online.
The National Construction Code (NCC) comprises of the current Building Code of Australia (BCA), Volume One and Two; and the Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA), Volume Three.
You can use the NCC for free OR use your TasTAFE student/staff login to gain full access. Logging in will let you view all the standards referred to by the code.
Our Standards Online subscription provides standards that are not available through the NCC. We have made it easy for you to use the standards by listing and providing a link to them.
We have two large collections of journal articles. These collections are great online resources because they make finding what you need easy. You can print or download articles, listen to articles, highlight text and take notes, create lists, translate text and much more. Our online collections consist of General Onefile and Academic Onefile.
This online collection contains journal articles, full-text journals, newspaper and magazine articles, eBooks and videos. After logging in with your TasTAFE username and password, you can search over 100 million items in this amazing collection. If you can't find what you are looking for, Topic Finder (located on the home page) will suggest similar search terms or keywords.
If you need to find scholarly material that is peer reviewed by experts in the field, have a look at Academic Onefile. It covers a great range of topics and is a good source of authoritative material. Academic Onefile covers the 1980s to the present and is updated daily.
Our special journal article collections are similar to General Onefile and Academic Onefile - they are online collections of resources and information that have been organised to help you find what you need with ease.
