Information for international partner students

Welcome to the Federation University Library. We provide a range of high-quality scholarly information resources and services to assist you with your studies.

This information is for our students located outside of Australia at Heibi University of Science and Technology, Nawaloka College of Higher Studies, Shaoguan University, Shenzhen Poly, SINO Institute of Continuing Education, and Zhejiang University of Technology.

Library services

Students at partner providers outside Australia have access to electronic resources through the Library, including databases, electronic journals, and eBooks. You can search for these by keyword in QuickSearch, or browse our A-Z of library databases.

You can also browse our Subject Guides for additional help. These have links to resources relevant to your field of study, as well as useful tips and tricks. Our Partner Students Library Services Guide also has helpful information for students studying at our partner institutions.

For assistance with QuickSearch, Library databases and using our subject guides, please speak to the library staff at your institution.

Books and other physical materials cannot be borrowed by students outside Australia.

Help with referencing

For help using APA and other referencing styles, go to our FedCite Referencing tool for precise instructions and to see examples of correct citations for different formats of materials. Your course description and your lecturer or tutor will also be able to provide more information on the preferred citation style for each course you undertake.

Our Referencing page has more information including how to use EndNote Online, a free referencing and bibliography tool that all our students have access to.

Further referencing support can be provided by your institute’s library staff. You will also find helpful short videos on APA referencing and other useful topics via our YouTube channel.
