Today (Friday 27 November) is a significant day for the University of Sydney Nursing Library – this is its last day in Mallett Street on the second floor of the old Bonds Factory (originally built in 1917). After its doors close today, the library’s collections and staff will be relocating to the new Susan Wakil Health Building Library, opening in February 2021.
The Nursing Library housed the collections for nursing and midwifery, as well as material on the social sciences and biology. Students enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere and large space to spread out and focus.
