Library Services

The JCU Library is an essential academic and student service with print and digital collections that students can borrow or access online 24/7.

Off-campus library services are available if you reside in Australia, but live further than 50 kilometres from either the JCU Townsville or Cairns campuses. See Off Campus and Remote Access for 24/7 resources and services.

Make sure you visit the Subject LibGuides to access key resources for your subjects and contact details for your Liaison Librarian who can help with your research and referencing queries. In this area you can also access the Library Channel for informative videos covering a range of topics, and the InfoSkills Road Trip, which is an interactive learning tool developed by the JCU Library.

The Library also offers a popular LibChat service which offers real-time online help from librarians during library opening hours (including nights and weekends). To access the Off-Campus Library Service, phone (07) 4781 4380 or email offcampus@jcu.edu.au.
