How do you keep up to date with the latest research and curriculum ideas if you are no longer studying, but are working in the education profession?  This guide brings together a wealth of free educational resources that can support beginning and practising teachers to continue research and scholarship.

If you do decide to access The University of Melbourne's wide-range of scholarly information resources after graduation (e.g. databases, journal access), this is available through a paid subscription to Library Services for Alumni of The University of Melbourne.
