Reading lists

Locate your reading list items on eReadings by lecturer or unitcode or use Library Search to locate prescribed texts.

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.

Library Service

If you are not sure where or how to find information, struggle with referencing, need access to a computer, need a book or just a friendly person to talk to, come and see us at the library. If you are studying online, send us an email or call us.

Liaison Librarians are here to assist you for researching and referencing.

The Liaison Librarians can help you:

  •     Formulate your search strategies for finding information
  •     Search for information using Library Search
  •     Search online information resources and the internet
  •     With your referencing queries

During semester hours (semester 1 and 2) students are able to drop in for assistance at Casuarina Library, Monday to Friday 10am-1pm (starting week 1 of the semester).
