Study Guides

We provide access to a range of study guides. They cover both subject-specific resources, and generic study skills such as researching and setting out assignments, and giving presentations. 


We provide access to a number of databases that compile journal articles and other publications from across a range of subject areas. Some of these databases are freely available, others are restricted to TAFE SA students and staff only, so you will need to login in order to access. Login to your library account and go to the Online Databases page to access these databases:
