Level up your study skills with this library resource
We’re always talking about how the library is key to your success at Deakin, but students who are just starting out might find it difficult to navigate all the resources and services we provide.
How to search for high-quality articles or resources to help with your assignment, how to plan and evaluate your search – these are common questions we receive through 24-hour Library Chat.
Now, we have put the answers all together in one easy place: our new Skills for Study webpage. This one-stop shop of useful links and resources provides tools, techniques and guidance to help students with their research and assessments. You’ll find definitions and further information about key terms, as well as videos and guides to boost your digital literacy skills.
You will also find information on planning your search, managing and evaluating information, copyright requirements and referencing help, along with tools such as the Creative Commons attribution builder and a downloadable search planner.
Still can’t find what you’re looking for?
The Library Help webpage focuses on quick answers to common questions and tips to help you with your studies, and now includes information on IT support, accessing resources and study support.
Of course, you can always get in touch with a library expert via Library Chat – available 24 hours a day.
We are keen to hear your feedback so we can continue to improve our library website. Let us know what you think about the updates by contacting the Learning and Teaching team.
Our hope is that these updated webpages better support your uni work!
