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.

Law Library plans

Law Library plans

Planning has commenced for a refresh of the Law Library on lower campus. Opening in 2019, the new areas will include an increase in student spaces, quiet individual study areas, 24/7 access, group meeting rooms, a kitchenette, and an exhibition space.

New computers

New computer space coming soon in the Main Library

Construction has begun on Levels 3 and 4 of the Main Library to create new spaces for Library computers.

Some PCs on Level 2 of the Main Library have moved to the east side of the Help Zone in preparation for this new area. Additional PCs are located in the Library lift foyers and will also be on Levels 3 & 4 when work on the new space is completed.

The Print/Copy services desk has also moved to the Library lift foyer on Level 2. The printers from the Level 2 Computer lounge will be reallocated across Levels 2, 3 & 4 of the Main 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.
