Year 12 and SACE Project Program

Welcome to Flinders University.

Year 12 students interested in using the Library’s services and resources to support their studies may register with the Library.

Schools who would like to bring class groups, please contact the Senior Liaison Librarian, Veronica Ghee to organise a time to visit. Flinders Library staff are happy to provide a personal welcome and basic orientation to the library services.

Here is a quick introduction to Central Library,  the branch  which holds the largest and most general of the university collections.

Students will need to compete the Year 12 patron form (PDF 165KB) to register to borrow from the Library. This must be countersigned by the year coordinator and brought to the ID Cards Desk (Level 1, Central Library) at the time of the first visit. Library cards issued will be available on an annual basis and will expire at the end of the school year, (usually late October.)

Year 11 students who visit as part of a school group may pre-register to use the library's services and resources during their year 12. Cards issued to these students will be active from the last working day in January the following year.

Students are subject to the Library Rules which apply to all library patrons.

Branch Libraries

Flinders University Library comprises four branches holding more than a million books and journals, large electronic collections and a wide range of services and facilities to support the teaching and research interests of University staff and students.

The Central Library is the largest, and holds materials to serve the whole University community. The Law Library (housed in the same building) holds materials relevant to the law and legal studies courses offered by the University, and includes legislation, law reports and specialist books and journals.

The Medical Library  is located in Flinders Medical Centre and contains material relevant to the teaching and research needs of the School of Medicine, including Medicine, Speech Pathology and Audiology, Nutrition and Public Health.

The Sturt Library  contains  materials principally to support the teaching and research needs of the staff and students in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, including the School of Nursing & Midwifery.

 Photocopying and Printing

Photocopying and printing is available in each library. Students can buy a casual printing and copying card from Cash Reloader machines in each of the libraries. Credit can be added at these machines.


FindIt@Flinders is the tool by which to search for print and online books, journals and articles, and digital collections. Terminals, found throughout all libraries, give access to FindIt@Flinders and the location for every part of the Library's collection. Using FindIt@Flinders on these terminals in the library also offers "walk-in" access to a wide range of online content. FindIt@Flinders is a publicly searchable tool and it may be useful for students to familiarise themselves with it ahead of a visit.
