Research and resources

  • Library Search provides a single, integrated search across the library’s catalogue and many databases. Results will include links to public subscription-based literature and public documents.
  • Members interested in professional reading may find it helpful to search directly via the library catalogue. This will limit a search to the library’s education research collection including books, reports and conference proceedings. While the collection is focused on Australian education, it does include international literature.
  • Use EdResearch Online to identify Australian education literature. Request articles not available in full text.

Library requests

Library members can request books, reports, conference papers and journal articles held in the Cunningham Library collection.

The first ten copies and the first ten loans, supplied in a subscription year, are free of charge. Contact the library to discuss charges for additional supply. Where possible requests will be supplied by email. Physical items will be delivered by Express Post. Library members will be responsible for the return costs. Library members visiting the library will not be charged for the supply of articles or loans.

Literature search requests

Research assistance is available from the Cunningham Library. See Literature searching for further information.
