ECU is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and acting on the latest advice of the Australian Government and health authorities.
To ensure the health and wellbeing of our staff and students we’ve moved a number of our services online. Our face to face service continues, with some changes.
We’re expanding our digital services to make sure we are supporting our students at this time, and encourage you to contact us with any queries, including for assistance using our wide range of online resources.
During April and May access to Campus Libraries and services were available with some restrictions.
From 1 June we reintroduced access to all usual Library areas:
Access is restricted to ECU staff and students only at this time.
See the Opening hours page for Library opening hours. This page is updated with semester, inter semester break and Orientation Library opening hours.
The eLabs on all campuses returned to 24 hour access from 15 June. Remember to bring your swipe card for after hours access. You can see IT counter service times and find more information at the Support and advice web page.
Loans of books and laptops are available. There's more information about loan laptops at ECU's FAQ page.
Please help us to keep our Library spaces open by maintaining 1.5 metres space between you and other people, and washing or sanitising your hands frequently.
A number of vendors and publishers is providing expanded access to resources to further support online teaching, learning and research during this time. These have been compiled in a Library Guide which is being regularly updated:
If you haven’t studied off campus before, this is a good opportunity to build your skills in online learning.
Moving components of your study to an online mode means you’ll be spending a lot of time in Blackboard and using Teams to collaborate with your peers and teaching staff. We’ve compiled some video resources to help you get comfortable with ECU’s learning technologies.
Don’t go it alone!
The Library website is packed full of resources, so we’ve pulled out some to help you get started.
