TasTAFE Libraries

TasTAFE Libraries are committed to providing a dynamic space that supports a great learning experience. Our focus is helping students gain their qualification.

The seven TasTAFE Libraries are a great place to study and socialise but they are also an important part of your support network. If you aren’t sure who to approach for the help you need, library staff are a good place to start for both on and off-campus students. Our phone and email contact details are located on About Us.

Technology

As well as computers, laptops and printer/photocopiers, you will also find new technology such as 3D printers, robots and Virtual Reality in the libraries.

Library staff love supporting our students and helping with basic IT skills. You can also find lots of excellent resources on our Technology Help page.

Library Collections

You can borrow and return to any of our seven libraries. The Library tab on the front page gives you access to our catalogues where you can search the collection, renew your loans, place reservations (called Holds).

As well as resources to support your study our collection also includes novels, graphic novels, quick reads, biographies, children’s books and much more for those who read to relax.

Resources Anywhere Anytime

Your TasTAFE login gives you access to eBooks, online videos, and standards. Millions of journal articles are available through our databases. You can read or listen to articles and download, print or email them. Articles can also be translated into other languages. You can access these resources through the Online tab on the front page of the library website.

Help

There is a Subject Guide devoted to each major teaching area at TasTAFE. Click the Subject tab on the library’s homepage to find your guide. The guides contain links to websites, videos, articles and books that will give you a starting point for your research.

If you are returning to study or just want to get better at it, you can find hints and tips on the Help pages.
