Every student uses digital technologies in their studies even if their degree is not entirely online.
This section contains useful tools and resources to help you create a positive digital environment for your study needs.
When studying at home your desk should be set up ergonomically. UNSW has work, health, and safety guidelines for setting up your desk or you can listen to an ergonomics expert explain the best way to set up your workstation.
It is not all about ergonomics - your study space impacts your learning and wellbeing. Desk clutter can impact your ability to concentrate while studying.
Tips to make your study space work for you
Online classrooms and learning environments are becoming increasingly common and the UNSW Student Code of Conduct policy extends to your behaviour online as well as on campus.
Netiquette refers to the code of conduct for interacting in online spaces via online discussion forums or virtual classrooms. The code is based on common sense rules and social conventions.
The most important rules of online etiquette are to think before posting anything online and only posting something you would say in person.

The Library holds over a million resources that you can use for your research. There are also hundreds of databases, which do not always include full text.
To help you access the full text of items not held in the Library collection you can download a browser extension tool. These tools have different coverage of subject areas and types of information, so it can help to download more than one to experiment with and to identify which works for your content needs.
