Changes Proposed to Library Desk & Open Hours in 2020

In an effort to provide concentrated support when you need it most and to simplify our hours across our sites, the Library is proposing changes to our desk hours and opening hours starting Semester 1, 2020.

The proposed changes include the following across our sites:

Changes to Desk Hours

Fisher and Law libraries are open 24/7 (for those of you who like to study late!). Statistics tell us that 94% of our enquiries are received between 8am-8pm, so we are proposing a change to when our information desks are open:

Monday-Thursday  Friday  Saturday  Sunday 
Fisher 8am-8pm  8am-8pm  10am-5pm  1pm-5pm 
Law 8am-8pm  8am-8pm  10am-5pm  1pm-5pm

  1. It would be great if the chat service could be coordinated from the Fisher/Law libraries on weekends as well when these libraries are open (10am-5pm Sat and 1-5pm Sun) as these are most often when I have accessed the chat service. As a remote student this service has been invaluable.

  2. Hello, the survey link is not accepting responses as of Monday 14 October due to “technical difficulties”

    1. Hi Justine,
      Sorry about that & thanks for letting us know.
      That link should now be working, let us know if you are still having trouble.
      Kind Regards, Demi
