What's a library database?
This short video gives an explanation of library databases and how to use them from a student's perspective. Find the most relevant databases for your area of study with Library Subject Guides.


International student stories
In this resource, eight RMIT students share some of their experiences in adapting to study in Australia. The resource will introduce four areas that international students often find new and a little difficult at first. The four areas cover student expectations and new ways of learning, the importance of referencing, structuring assignments and developing critical thinking.
