Advanced writing and research skills for 2nd year success

Academic skills and writing help

The Learning Centre logo




The Learning Advisors can help you with academic skills. They can give you advice on organising your time, help you understand your assignment questions, and teach you skills for editing your work.

You can drop in to the Peer Advisor desk in the library to have some quick assistance with your assignments (the Peer Advisors can look over some of your work and give you some feedback), or you can make an appointment with a Learning Advisor for a longer, more in-depth enquiry.

Research and referencing help

JCU Library can help you with researching and referencing information for your assignments. You can come in and talk to any of our librarians and library staff members. Drop in and visit the InfoHelp desk on the ground floor of the library for a quick consultation, or make an appointment with your liaison librarian for more advanced help.

The chat service you'll find on all of our Guides (like this one) is another library service. It is available to answer quick questions about finding and citing information. You can leave a message after hours, and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
