For Researchers

Library resources and services to assist Southern Cross University researchers throughout the research lifecycle

Your Librarian

Southern Cross University Library is committed to providing support, resources and expertise to our researchers. We welcome the opportunity to partner with our researchers within the research lifecycle, from conception to publishing and re-use.

Research Lifecycle


To support your research your librarian can:

  • Advise on the best sources of information for your research, research strategies, effective use of online databases, strategies for staying current and setting up alerts.
  • Assist with library tools for measuring journal and researcher impact.
  • Advise on creating and managing references using Endnote.
  • Offer individual research consultations. This can be done by personal appointment, telephone, or videochat. We use Zoom for videochat, which you don’t need an account for, but you will need to download the zoom launcher to connect. If you haven’t used Zoom before and would like an introduction to connect on computer, tablet or phone click this link:

RAISE: Researcher Advanced Information Skills Education

RAISE is an independent-learning tool designed to build the research skills of Southern Cross University postgraduate students. The four modules cover search tips, advanced search tools, managing your research information, and disseminating your research.

Access each of the four modules here:

  • Fundamentals of searching will help you learn how to search effectively. Searching for information is not a neat, linear process. It is an evolving, circular and iterative process.
  • Extend your searching introduces you to strategies and tools which support more comprehensive searching. We also explain the varied level of searching required for different types of research projects.
  • Managing research information provides advice about resources to use when managing your references and how to keep up to date with the literature in your field, responsibilities you need to be aware of as a researcher at Southern Cross University, and the importance of managing research data.
  • Getting published introduces issues to consider when planning to publish, including authorship, copyright and intellectual property; building your researcher profile and creating research identifiers; and collaboration and networking.
