Welcome to the library

The aim of this guide is to highlight the library resources you can access from the campus libraries and online.  We also collect websites, video and tools that are relevant to your study. 
We hope you find these pages a useful starting point for your study.

Although we provide featured library resources you can find many more by using the catalogue search box at the top of the page.

All of the ebooks, streaming video, databases and tools are available 24/7 and are accessed using your TasTAFE login.

We are here to help! 'Library Chat' is available weekdays and you can use the 'Ask The Library' button to ask questions and we will email you the answers.
