Library research

Library print collection

The Library has an excellent specialised collection of print resources that are designed to support Year 11 and 12 students with research and study.

The collection includes HSC study guides, textbooks, reference books, non-fiction, encyclopedias, primary and secondary sources.

Databases

Students are encouraged to join Blacktown Library or the NSW State Library to access online resources from school or home.

Book a personal tutorial with a Librarian if you would like help using the databases. Some of the Databases that are usful for HSC students include:

  • EBSCO  - ANZRC
  • JSTOR
  • HSC Studylab
  • Lynda
  • My Career Match
  • Opposing Viewpoints
  • NoveList
  • History or Science Reference Centres

Printing and photocopying

Printing and photocopying costs 10c per page for black and white, and 50c per page for colour. Students can use their ID card to register an account at the photocopier machine in the library and can print independently. All student work for photocoping should be saved as a PDF file and stored on a USB stick. Students may also ask Library staff to assist with prining at the circulation desk. Staff may loan students a USB stick for printing purposes if needed.

Study periods

Students with study periods must be engaged in purposeful learning, reading, studying or quiet reflection. Students who are noisy or disengaged will be asked to go to the Learning Hub. Study carrels are provided for students on study periods and students are requested to give priority to classes when selecting a space to study. Students on study sessions must not be sitting with classes booked in the Library so others are not disturbed.
