JCU online Library

Accessing the library

The JCU Library is an essential academic and student service that online students can access online 24/7. Any online student can use the library from anywhere to search and access books, eBooks, eJournal articles, as well as streaming media and more.

If you reside in Australia, but live further than 50km from either the Townsville or Cairns campuses, you can even borrow library books using the online request form which includes a free, post-paid bag to return materials. You can also request scanned copies of journal articles and book chapters.

Library tips and useful features:

  • LibChat offers real-time online help from librarians during library opening hours (including nights and weekends). Click on the ‘chat icon’ from the library’s website.
  • LibGuides provide key resources and contact details for Liaison Librarians by discipline, who will help you with your researching, referencing and assignment skills.
  • Make sure you also explore the Library Channel, where you can watch informative videos with tips and advice on how to use the library services.

Your academic calendar

Our fast-tracked online learning model means you can enrol into a subject at any six times throughout the year, focusing on one subject at a time.

What’s more, you’ll still complete your postgraduate qualification ahead of most other university programs.
