Law Library plans

Law Library refurbishment

UNSW Law Library is undergoing a significant redesign and refurbishment. Incorporating student feedback, the refurbishment will include 250 additional quiet student study spaces with ergonomically designed furtniture and power points for charging devices, Help Zone pods and a new food reheating station.

From Saturday 8 December the Law Library will operate on Level 1 only. Access to the Law Library will be via the faculty lifts, stairs or escalator. Full Library services and resources will be available on Level 1 including Help Zone, Drop-in research support, high use collection, books related to Law Summer courses and requested items.

Books not on Level 1 can be requested via myLibrary and will be available for collection on Level 1 or any UNSW Library location.

You talked. We listened.

You talked. We listened.

The Library recently asked you how you used the Main and Law Library physical spaces. You talked. We listened. Find out what others had to say about your study spaces and what we have planned. We are also investigating how you are currently using spaces at UNSW Paddington Library.

Library collections on the move

Library collections on the move

Low use books have been moved to the Library basement and are now available on request via the Library collection. Current print journals have been temporarily relocated to the basement and will be returned to the open shelves soon; they are presently available on request via the Library collection. Print journals that we no longer subscribe to have been relocated and are now available electronically or on request via the Library collection.

As we move our print collections into new spaces we are updating the location for each book as well as providing an overview on the Main Library collection range page. We appreciate your understanding while we complete this project to revitalise our print collections and create new study spaces.
