UNSW Library Collection Development Strategy
This strategy has been created as a planning tool to give direction and focus to the selection and collection practice at UNSW Library. It ensures that the overall collection and access to the collection supports the aims of both the University and the Library. The primary aim of the Library is to collect, organise and provide access to information in all formats needed to meet the learning, teaching and research needs of our clients.
Collection Maintenance Framework (CMF)
This framework applies to our unique print resources at the UNSW Sydney Main Library. The CMF defines the principles and criteria used to ensure the integrity and continuing access to resources critical to the scholarly research, teaching and learning of UNSW and the academic community.
Left property policy
This policy applies to group study rooms, seminar rooms and open seating areas across all three UNSW Library locations: Main Library - Kensington, Law Library - Kensington and UNSW Paddington Library - Paddington.
Laptop loans terms and conditions
UNSW students should familiarise themselves with the terms and conditions before borrowing and using Library laptops.
