Examination Super Hours, 2nd Semester 2019

Examination Super Hours for this semester begin on Monday, 4 November and run until closing on Thursday, 21 November.

During this time the library is open longer hours to help students prepare for their exams. Depending on your campus, the building is open for longer hours to provide a study space, and our services run for longer periods of time in case you need to speak to a librarian.

Please be mindful of other students using the library spaces. This is a stressful time of semester for many students and we all need to use the shared spaces with kindness and respect.

The library building - 7.30am-12am (midnight)
Library services - 7.30am-12am (midnight)

Our chat service will be available for as long as library services are open on at least one campus, but please be aware that our staff might not be available to chat if they busy helping other clients. Our FAQs are available for perusing at all times.

Our 24 hour spaces will be available around the clock, and so will all of our online resources.

Welcome to Your Library

The beginning of semester is a time for finding your feet and figuring out where everything is.

Whether you are an on-campus student or if you can only visit the campus occasionally, you'll probably find yourself spending time in our libraries. Just to help you find your way around, here's a quick idea of what you'll be able to do in our buildings.

Borrow books, DVDs and more.

Obviously a library has things you can borrow. In addition to books, we also have DVDs, CDs, sheet music and more. You'll need your student or staff card (it's also your library card) to check out anything you want to take out of the building.

In addition to the main collection, where most of our borrowable material is held, we also have a Curriculum Collection (where all the best books are), reference collections, special collections and print journals. You can find yourself looking in the wrong place, so don't hesitate to ask any library staff for help. Take a look at the location inform…

Examination Super Hours, 1st Semester 2019

Examination Super Hours run from the 3rd of June until the last week of scheduled exams, on Friday 21st June.

Opening hours are extended to give students extra use of the library's study spaces during study vac and exams.

During this time, when a lot of students are feeling stressed, we ask that you be mindful of the other people using the library spaces and share the space with good will and kindness - keeping in mind the Client Service Charter and Library Use Policy.

A Reading Challenge for 2019

We had such a great time playing with Hannah Braime's 52 Book Reading Challenge last year that we thought we'd try another Reading Challenge for 2019.

Read As Many Books As You Can

This year, we're not challenging you to read 52 books, we're challenging you to read as many books as you can each month. You may have some months where you read 4 or 5 books, and other months where you can only fit in 2. That's okay. You might end up reading more than 52 books over all.

Each month we'll be giving you a theme, and you have to try find books that fit within that theme. You can be creative - for example, if the theme is "Geography and Travel", you can read a novel set in a country you'd like to visit, the diary of an explorer and a book with the word "Geography" in the title (like this one). You get to decide how your books fit the theme.

Minimum Requirements

It's not much of a challenge if we don't give you a few hoops to jump though. So…
