I am the librarian at Kent Institute, my name is David Hart. I want your studies at Kent to be very successful, so it is important to have access to your textbooks and online resources when searching for journal articles. You should find 5 to 8 journal articles for every assignment, being sure to utilise EBSCO databases available on the side menu of the Kent homepage.
Students can purchase brand new or second hand textbooks from Uni Coop Bookshop with online ordering and free delivery over $50: www.coop.com.au
Coop Bookshop is located at: 153 Phillip St, Sydney, a short walk from Kent Institute campus, next to Lindt Café (great for hot chocolate!)
Textbooks can also be rented from: www.zookal.com.
