Please note that most of the ECU handbooks and training resources in this library guide link through to the Graduate Research School's Blackboard site. If you are having trouble accessing this site, you may need to enrol in the community site. ECU HDR students are usually automatically given access to the Blackboard site when they enrol. The GRS Programs site will be listed under My Communities on the left-hand side menu list of sites that you can access. If you are not enrolled, you will need to search for ‘GRS Programs’ using the Community Site Search box (on the right-hand side of the page). Once you find it, click the small grey arrow beside the name GRS Programs, and you can self-enrol.
