Access to Library resources

  • The Library has an extensive print and online collection, including books, journals, articles, maps, architectural plans, manuscripts, databases, video and audio. Use Library Search to find, access, and request the resources you need
    • For new students, access to Library resources commences 6 weeks (42 days) before the start of semester, to support you in your preparation for your studies
    • For graduating students, access to Library resources will cease upon your degree being conferred by your School or Faculty. Upon graduating, you are then eligible to sign up for membership as a UQ alumni
  • See how to borrow and search help for more information on using the collection
