Making a difference

Sydney TAFE's college libraries provide quality, targeted educational resources, qualified professional and para-professional staff and safe, friendly learning environments. Libraries are located at each of our college campuses and are resourced to meet the course offerings of that location.

Resources for your studies — online and on campus

Our libraries have a vast range of print and online resources available to support you with your studies. Access our resources from home or on campus — our online resources include hundreds of magazine and journal articles, electronic books and online videos for your subject area.

Many of our libraries are open in the evenings and Ultimo College library is open on Saturday afternoons during term time. As a Sydney TAFE student you can use any of our college libraries and also have access to the state-wide network of TAFE NSW libraries — you will need to have your current Sydney TAFE card with you.

Library staff available to help

Our friendly, professional staff members are available for one-on-one help tailored to your specific assignment requirements. You can request help with research, referencing and bibliography creation, searching the catalogue and finding print and online resources.

Online reference services — known as Ask a librarian — are available. Library staff also offer training sessions and advice on copyright requirements.

Study spaces for individuals and groups

There are individual and group study facilities as well as relaxation spaces you can use at your Sydney TAFE library. Free Internet and Wi-Fi access is available as well as computers, photocopiers and printers for student use.

English conversation and reading groups

Weekly English conversation and reading groups for students to practise reading and speaking English in small, friendly groups are available at some Sydney TAFE libraries. We also have a wide variety of materials — including IELTS resources — to support your English language learning.
