High school students

Develop your research and information skills

Study Smart is an online self-paced course designed to help you develop the research and information skills needed for university. Work through all four modules, or just the one you need now.

Resources to help you research, reference and write

Start your research with our guides to researching by study area, containing links to relevant books, journals, databases and websites on a broad range of topics, then get your referencing and writing right with QUT cite|write, the student guide to citing and referencing at QUT that also contains helpful tips for effective academic writing.

Use QUT Libraries

We have three branch libraries and you are welcome to visit and study in any of them. If you need help, ask a staff member at HiQ (at Gardens Point or Kelvin Grove Libraries) or at the Law Library Helpdesk.

Read and borrow books, and more

Borrowing memberships are available to Queensland high school students (years 10 to 12).

To find books, DVDs and other items in the Library's physical collections that you can borrow or use in the Library, use our tailored "community search". Not sure how to use the Library Search? Check out our tips and guides on how to use it effectively.

Selected databases are available to the public from the public access computers at any campus.
