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:

Fisher 8am-8pm  8am-8pm  10am-5pm  1pm-5pm 
Law 8am-8pm  8am-8pm  10am-5pm  1pm-5pm
