Celebrate Women’s History Month by joining Sydney University Press and the University of Sydney Library for a Wikipedia edit-a-thon on Tuesday 20 March, 2018.
Women make up just 12% of Wikipedia contributors and are 16% of individuals profiled, which means there is a gender imbalance on the platform. To combat this, we will be editing Wikipedia together to improve the representation of Australian women. No experience needed: there will be training, cheat sheets, references and roving Wiki experts on-hand – plus snacks! Join us and help change the future of Wikipedia. Register here.
Following the successful launch of The Quarter, Bosch and Camden Commons at the start of Semester 1, Fisher and Law libraries will be open 24/7 from the start of Semester 2. Great news for students with no hanging around at 10pm to get into the small level 3 space. Staff can also take advantage of this new service. Students and staff will have:
access to all collections including 2 hour loans and holds
2713 study spaces
bookable discussion rooms
self-issue machines to borrow books
Both libraries are going to be staffed by security personnel only, which means that some of the library services are not available, including:
bonus and interlibrary loan pick-ups
help through staffed Information and ICT points
SYDPAY card encoding
paying fines in person.
Please remember to bring your student or staff card as you will need this to access the building. If you have any more questions, please ask a member of staff.
