New Students Guide: Welcome

A brief Library orientation for new students

Welcome to CDU


Welcome New Students

Welcome to everyone from all over the world beginning their studies at CDU in Semester 1 2018.  This is the start of a new and exciting adventure. The library has a host of services and resources available regardless of your study mode (on campus or via distance) to support you throughout the year and beyond.

Use this guide to familiarise yourself with the library resources and services and don't hesitate to contact our helpful staff for further assistance. 


Learn how to use Library Search or specific databases to find academic journal articles for your assignments. Need to know how to evaluate a website or how to use EndNote?  Register for a library workshop they are free and take place on campus and online.

Library Help
Library staff are available to assist you in a variety of ways including email, by telephone or in person at the library. Students can arrange a one-on-one appointment either in person or online.

Evaluation Survey

This semester we are asking students to give their feedback on library sessions they attend. The information is anonymous and helps greatly with ensuring we are meeting students needs in training sessions.

There are only 6 questions and should only take a few minutes of your time.

Thank you
