Verse Mag's Blak Out issue has launched
The Blak Out edition of Verse Magazine, showcasing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student excellence, has hit the stands! Find it on campus or online.

Head Editor Tabitha Lean leads a team of Aboriginal student editors and contributors to launch Blak Out, which was first imagined as a way to create a decolonised and dedicated space for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island students to share their knowledge, opinions, art, craft and experiences with a wide audience of people both within the Indigenous student cohort and outside of it.

Get the most out of the library catalogue
Did you know you can search the library collection with your voice? This is just one of the many useful tricks that will help you get the most out of the UniSA library catalogue.

Save your favourites
The library catalogue allows you to save favourite resources and searches.
Set up alerts
The catalogue also allows you to set up email alerts for your saved searches.
Personalise your results
Another useful feature is the personalise option, which allows you to set up subject filters to personalise your search results to your research or teaching discipline.
Use voice searching
The catalogue can now be searched using speech recognition, allowing you to enter search terms using your microphone rather than typing in your terms.

Stressed about exams? Chat to our counselling team
UniSA’s Counselling Service offers free and confidential short-term counselling to onshore students to help you manage any personal issues that may be affecting your studies, such as exams or assignments.

If you feel you might need help with managing during exam time, you can talk to one of our counsellors, who are highly qualified and have extensive experience working with university students. Appointments might not be available immediately, so it’s best to book ahead of time to ensure you can get a spot for when you need it.
