A guide for teachers and students

Welcome to JCU Library

JCU Library offers a range of services and resources for school students, teachers, teacher librarians and other community members. Members of the public can use our print collection onsite, and access and download many of our online resources from the public access computers. Articles can be saved onto an external storage device. Photocopying and printing services are available. For information on borrowing print resources, see the Borrowing page. 

We also have a range of research and subject guides to help with assignments. Library tours and information literacy workshops for students or staff can be tailored to your needs.

Please contact us to see how we can enhance student learning and ease the transition to further study.
