Textbooks, resources and readings
We provide access to your required course resources. 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.
If a standard loan item you have on loan is placed on hold by another borrower, you will receive a recall email notice asking you to return the item. Recall notices specify a new due date for the item on loan, allowing a minimum 7-day loan period on a standard loan.
Get items from other Griffith campus libraries
You can request books from other Griffith campus libraries by placing a hold in the library catalogue.
We will copy articles held at another Griffith University campus library when the journal is not held at your home campus or electronically.
Enrolled as off-campus? Living overseas? On rural placement? We will send resources to your remote location.
You can walk into any campus library for free access to our physical resources, however we do not allow access to electronic resources. You can also borrow selected resources by joining the library for a fee.
