Welcome to new students

We would like to welcome to those students who have just joined ECU and hello to those returning. Just wanting to let you know that we have a range of support available from tours, workshops, online help and library staff to chat to when your needing to find information. There is a really useful website where you can enrol for workshops or locate useful contacts. Just click here or select Training option from the website.

Another link that you may be interested in, to get some practice before you start having to write your assisgnments, is the ECU Library Referencing site. Here you will find answers to some key questions and some very help short tutorials.

Check out the blog regularly for further useful library information.

Find It @ ECU links in Google Scholar

Currently, FindIt@ECU links are not automatically appearing within Google Scholar search results for users on campus. This normally happens, but there is a problem at the moment which is preventing this occurring.

We have been told that the links may reappear on or after Friday 13 February, as we are waiting for Google to search the server again. When it does, details will be updated and that's when links to ECU will re-appear.

We apologise for any inconvenience. This currently affects all users on and off campus using any browser.

For more information on how to set up links manually once the problem is fixed (not necessary for Internet Explorer users on campus), please visit http://www.ecu.edu.au/library/system/google_scholar.htm
