Check out books faster, find them easier

We’ve been working on a major project across Semester 2, to upgrade the old failing technology we use to manage print collections. We’ve almost completed the project and have some news and information for you.

Installation of new technology in Fisher, Law and SciTech Libraries

Commencing 27 November we’ll be installing new security gates and self-check machines. You can find all the important information about accessing the libraries below:

Fisher Library

Between 27 November and 8 December we will dismantle and reinstall the main gates. You will still be able to access Fisher via the main entry on Level 3. Please follow directional signage. You can return your books during staff hours (Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm and Saturday 1pm to 5pm) to Library staff at the main desk and after hours to security.

Between 4 Dec – 8 Dec the 2 hour area won’t be accessible. If you need to access the 2 hour/Holds or Bonus+ collection, staff at the service desk can help.

Law Library

Between 28 Nov to 5 Dec the main entry to the Library will be closed. The Law Library will remain open and is accessible via Fisher. Access to 2 hour collections will be provided by staff at the Law information desk.

 

SciTech

Between 29 Nov to 6 Dec the main entrance will be closed, but the Library will remain open and you can access it via the emergency door as shown on the map below.

This Satellite map shows the emergency entry of SciTech Library.

But, the minor pain will be worth the gain!

Once all the hardware is installed, you’ll start to experience the benefits of the new system:

  •  Better, quicker check out (multiple books at once)
  • Finding books will be easier
  • Easier returns with more reliable technology
