Library facilities

CAFRE students and staff have access to a library at each of the three campuses. Our libraries provide a modern learning environment with integrated library services, resources, study spaces and student computers. Users have access to electronic resources both on campus and when working on their own laptop at home. 

Libraries play a vital role in supporting teaching, learning and development. 

Our library staff will support you with your research needs and provide assistance in sourcing suitable resources both on and off campus. Our libraries aim to provide students with the necessary information literacy skills; how to locate and use information from a variety of sources, effectively find, evaluate, and use information sources and develop essential skills beneficial for taking into the future.  

Our experienced, qualified and friendly staff are happy to help. With the library you will find:
