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 in a limited way.
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.
Access to our Libraries on Joondalup, Mount Lawley, and South West campuses is available but with some restrictions. Access is restricted to ECU staff and students only at this time, and requires your ECU ID card.
Loans and returns of books and laptops are still available (with conditions). Where access to collections is restricted, we will assist you by bringing any resources you need to Library Enquiries Desk. We are experiencing students being unable to return books and laptops that have holds. You will be contacted by a library staff member if this happens.
Please help us to keep our Library spaces open by observing social distancing strategies: maintain 1.5 metres space between you and other people, and wash or sanitise your hands frequently.
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.
The Library website is packed full of resources, so we’ve pulled out some to help you get started.
