The library offers specific services to assist postgraduate students with their research needs.  Also, the library has an allocated study space for our postgraduate students near the library.

APPOINTMENTS WITH LIBRARY STAFF

Postgraduate students are encouraged to make an appointment with one of the librarians at ATL. The appointment will cover an overview of library services we offer to postgraduates. This includes assistance with a literature search on the thesis topic and access to other library collections which may be important in the research area.

For library appointments please contact us on 8416 8416 or send an email to theo.library@flinders.edu.au
