Five things the Library can help you with

News story

The Robertson Library at the Perth campus has so much more to offer than just books, computers and donuts (though all of those things are great). There are all sorts of helpful services available to students, and you don’t even have to be studying on-campus to access them!

Referencing. The Library has comprehensive guides for all of the major referencing styles used at Curtin available online. If you’re having trouble, the Library Help staff on Level 2 can also help you with basic referencing and search queries.

Preparing for exams. As well as books and journals, you can find hundreds of past exam papers in the Library Catalogue. Reading through and completing past papers is a great way to revise your unit material and prepare for upcoming exams.

Improving your study skills. There are lots of different workshops and programs you can participate in at the Library to brush up on your academic skills – both general and course-specific. Find out the Study Skills support that is available or have a look at the Library Event Calendar to check out upcoming workshops.       

Getting creative. Head up to the Library Makerspace on Level 5 to learn a new skill and get those creative juices flowing! The Makerspace hosts workshops, events and weekly group sessions where students can communicate, learn and create. Have a look at what’s on offer.

Recharging. Need a break from studying? The Library can help with that too! Next time you’re having a mental block, go grab a coffee and a bite to eat down at the Bookmark Café – or if you’re really in need of a rest, try catching up on some Zs in the sleeping pods on Level 3.
