Continuing the series of Things You Should Know About the Library, librarian Elaine Magusin shares additional Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: I have been looking at the library website and noticed something called the Digital Reference Centre. What is it?

A: The Digital Reference Centre (DRC) is a list of websites and subscription sources that AU librarians have evaluated and compiled to supplement our print collection. They have been collected with the distance learner in mind, and include language dictionaries and encyclopedias, atlases, statistical resources, e-journals, and e-books.

Q: Where can I find help on writing papers?

A: AU librarians have compiled a list of web writing resources and placed them in our Help Centre, which is accessible both from the library homepage and from the Digital Reference Centre. These sources include both documents created by AU Library and those created by other universities. For more information, contact the library (6254).
