What's happening?

Keep up-to-date about changes in the Library.

 

Device charging stations

You can now find more device charging stations and lockers to power up your personal devices while studying at Main, Law and Paddington Library. Portable battery chargers are also available for loan at Main and Law Library Help Zones (for use with your own cable).

Study spaces

In line with advice from NSW health and the additional measures UNSW has adopted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have temporarily closed group study pods and the retreat space.

You may have noticed new lounges for quiet or group study available at Main and Paddington Library. Relax and enjoy the permanent retreat space on Level 3 at Main Library. Look for the new bookable group study pods on Level 8 at Main Library.

Book giveaway

We are proactively taking precautions and suspending book giveaway until further notice.

Library building essential services upgrade

There is major essential fire safety services upgrade work taking place throughout the Main Library building including some student areas during 2019 and early 2020. You will see blocked off areas on various levels as the work progresses. While each area is being worked on, hoardings will be in place. In some locations, collection resources will be temporarily moved to Library storage and available by request. These areas will be returned to student use as soon as work is completed.

Print journal facility

UNSW Library’s new facility to house our print journal collection is in development. Located at the Randwick campus, all print journals other than our current subscriptions and a selection of folios will be located at the new facility. When completed, access to the collection will be via a journal article scan and deliver service or as a visitor to the reading room, upon appointment. For any academic queries in the interim, please contact either Jane Knowles or Megan Saville.

Next Generation Digital Repositories

UNSW Library will meet the changing needs and expectations of institutions, funders and researchers by transforming UNSW’s digital repositories and managing a diverse range of digital content including theses, research outputs (traditional and non-traditional), research data and digitised collections in line with international best-practice.
