Libraries at a glance

Have you ever wondered what library staff do in between helping you?

This is a snapshot of the services, resources and facilities we provided in a year to Hunter & Central Coast students and staff, not including all of the events we host! Did you know that we often trial and select new online resources (not just what’s on the shelf), maintain the website, and our subject librarians create your LibGuides?

You can find current details about these library services and more at any time here:

I didn’t know that…

…I could get help with referencing my assignment!  

You can:  

  • Book A Librarian for help and support in referencing your assignments.  Our librarians can help answer questions that you have about referencing. Drop in, email or phone your Local TAFE Library to book a time in advance. 
  • Visit our library website for information, guides and resources on Referencing styles including APA and Harvard.
  • Login to Studiosity, an online tutoring service available to TAFE NSW students from Sunday to Friday from 3pm – late. For more information, see our blog post from earlier this year.

Referencing Quick Tips: 

  • Always check with your teacher what referencing style to use  
  • As soon as you begin your research start recording the bibliographic details of the sources of information you use – author, title, date of publication, publisher, website address 
  • Be consistent with your referencing style throughout your assignment  
  • If unsure Ask a Librarian!
