TAFE libraries offer specialised training resources, on campus and remote access to authoritative digital information as well as appropriate study spaces for single or collaborative study. Library staff are available to support your study needs, provide study skills advice and assist with navigating our exciting online learning technologies.

Central Regional TAFE has two physical Library facilities. One is located at the Geraldton Campus and the other located at our Northam Campus.

The Library is available to all enrolled students and staff of Central Regional TAFE. All students enrolled at the College are automatically members of the library and able to take advantage of the services provided.

We provide a range of services.

These services include:

  • binding and laminating
  • computer services
  • information services
  • interlibrary loans
  • photocopying and printing
  • referencing assistance
  • reciprocal borrowing, and
  • student ID cards.

Please note that not all services may be available at each library.

 

Not a TAFE Student?

Students currently enrolled at other educational institutions may borrow resources from our library and are subject to the same rules and regulations as other members. A current student card or proof of current enrolment must be presented. Memberships are for the current academic year only.

Referencing

APA style is our preferred format for referencing. Guides are available for loan from the Library. An on-line guide is also available. Your lecturer may arrange for an information session to be conducted by the Library Coordinator. You may also seek assistance from Library staff.

subject guides

Our subject guides assist you with finding information on a particular topic, how to use our on-line resources, study skills and more.  As they are created we will add them to this page so check back regularly.

Bookshop

We have two bookshops, one located in the Library at the Geraldton Campus in X Block and the other located at the Northam campus.

The Bookshops stock the textbooks required for your course materials and some stationery items. They are open every term day for you to purchase your requirements.

All textbooks are required to be paid in full at the time of purchase.  Refunds only apply if the book is in the same condition as when sold (not marked or damaged) and is still a current edition.

The Bookshop does not buy or sell second hand books. Students can check campus noticeboards for second hand book sales. 

The Bookshops are open from Monday - Friday 8.30 am to 4.30 pm during school terms (Geraldton Campus) and Monday - Friday 8.00 am to 4.00 pm (Northam Campus).  Outside of these hours is by appointment only.
