To locate a book, book chapter, ebook, newspaper article or journal article, you need tools available via the QUT Library website.

  • Library catalogue is the most comprehensive search of libraries across campuses, and the most authoritative way to check access to subscribed content. The catalogue allows you to search for many different items, including books, ebooks and audiovisual material.
  • Quick Find allows you to search across a number of tools: the library catalogue, most databases and QUT ePrints, a repository of staff papers. Quick Find is good for searches for known items and quick, initial searches on topics.

You can use both the catalogue and Quick Find to locate your resources.

To locate a journal, newspaper or magazine article:

Search on the title of the journal, newspaper or magazine- not the article title or article author. If the library holds the title, check that the year you require is available. Note that a reference without a link or a DOI may refer to a print journal or magazine in the library collection. Print journals have a call number and are found within campus collections.
