  • There are many ways to request the resources you need, begin with using Library Search
  • Databases, including eBook collections are available on the Library website.
  • Charles Darwin University's Research Webportal gives access to researcher profiles, research outputs, datasets, student theses and projects.
  • Workshops are available face-to-face and online with a focus on key skills, for example, managing information with EndNote, advanced research skills, publishing for impact, Social Media for research and more. They are repeated throughout the year and we are always interested in hearing from you if you have ideas for specific workshops and training programs. Find and register for a workshop.
  • Academic language is formal, objective and impersonal. This ensures that ideas and arguments are communicated in a clear, convincing and professional manner. There are also different types of academic writing used depending on the context of the work. You can fine more resources for academic writing on the Study Skills page.
