The University Library supports researchers and HDR students through each of the five key phases of the research lifecycle: plan, produce, publish, promote and preserve.
The Library Research Support Strategy defines the Library's position as a strategic partner in UniSC research initiatives and identifies its role in providing resources, professional advice, training and management of the University's research output.
