Can I still study in the Sydney Jones Library whilst the building works take place? .

You will be able to access and study in certain areas of the Sydney Jones Library however, once the essential build works start, study space will be limited and you should expect significant noise levels.


I need a copy of a specific book that’s usually in one of the inaccessible areas – how do I get it?

During this period of significant building work, users will not be able to get direct, shelf access, to the majority of the Sydney Jones physical book collections. We will operate a Click and Collect service Monday to Friday to provide access to physical materials, and our services and extensive collections will remain available online via the library website and Library Search. The Harold Cohen Library will also stay open throughout summer, with some temporary space closures due to necessary accessibility works.

 We recommend visiting the Sydney Jones Library before 5 June to browse and borrow from our collections, but do not worry as we will do our best to accommodate resource needs!


What other spaces are there on campus that I can use to study?

Please see our current FAQ for other study spaces available on campus here.

Yes! The brand new Brett Gardens will remain open from 10am – 6pm as an outdoor study space. 


Can I still access Special Collections and Archives?

What are the Sydney Jones Library opening hours over summer?

Both Libraries will be open from 9am – 6pm over the summer break, and our helpdesks will be staffed from Monday to Friday.

I need to return books, where should I go?
