Get your technology sorted
Getting connected and using reliable technology is imperative to your success. The Student computing website has you covered.
We provide access to your required textbooks, resources and readings. Reading lists created by your course convenor contain links to electronic books and digitised readings or the library catalogue when resources are not available online.
It's worth planning ahead
While many resources are accessible online they may have a limited number of simultaneous users so don't leave it to the last minute if you plan to rely on the library for your required and recommended readings.
- Required resources are essential to your learning in a course and facilitate achievement of the course’s learning outcomes.
- Recommended resources provide additional, background or current information relevant to the course’s learning outcomes.
