What can Librarians do for you?

Liaison Librarians

Your Liaison Librarians can help you with:

  • information literacy skills workshops for your students, which may be based on a particular assignment such as an essay or report, or they could focus on using a specific database or information resource.
  • library training sessions. These can be delivered as part of a tutorial either face-to-face or via Collaborate. There are also a range of workshops available on general topics like: Exploring 'Library Search', Referencing and Plagiarism.
  • researching and referencing assignment topics or creating short videos to support your teaching methods.
  • evaluating quality online information resources.
  • referencing queries.
  • assistance with requesting eReadings, Interlibrary loans and purchase requests.

Google Scholar for CDU


Google Scholar 

Charles Darwin University Library links automatically show when you search Google Scholar on campus.

Full text @ CDU shows that full text is available. Open these links in a new tab or window so you can go back to the original search.

If you are off campus/at home you will need to tell Google Scholar to use CDU as your institution.

Go to Google Scholar and select Settings.  In the Library Links search box, enter 'Charles Darwin University'. Tick the box beside the name then 'save'. Searching at home should now indicate when the resource is available via CDU Library.

Alternatively, view this short video on YouTube to set up your preferences.
