Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the Library

In response to the global health crisis, Torrens University Australia has moved its operations online. This is effective for the rest of Trimester 1. This means that all TUA campus libraries have moved their operations online. 

The library provides a range of services to ensure students and staff have the resources and support to achieve – and assist in achieving – academic success. The library provides access to a wide range of digital resources such as eBooks, articles, and online tools as well as providing online workshops in searching, evaluating and keeping track of online resources. 

Students and staff can contact the Library and Learning Services Teams through chat between the hours of 9am and 9pm, and receive an immediate response to queries and requests for assistance.  

 

Loans and Borrowing 

As campuses are closed, access to the library’s physical collection of books and journals has been suspended. Students are still able to access the hundreds of thousands of eBooks, and millions of research articles in the library’s digital collection.  

All current loans have been extended until campus services are reinstated. Students will not be penalised for returning library items past the due date.
