The College Library Catalogue enables staff and students to search the Library Collection. Our collection includes books, magazines and online resources.  To access, click on the Search Catalogue icon above.

From the State Library of Victoria: The main difference between searching the web and a library is that the web has lots of unsourced and misleading information.  Whilst the library has a smaller collection, these are from trusted sources.
