As an RHD student at the School of Education, I have access to printers for free at AOB Building where my office is also located. I normally get papers from the school office and print for free at AOB. However, I prefer to go to Huxley and Auchmuty libraries to study due to the vibe here but printing here is costly. This could be a headache as I need to print plenty of my SPSS findings and every time doing so I have to get back to AOB or pay for printing at the libraries. So how about giving RHD students free printing credits to printers in these libraries? I think the library services can ask IT services to give very RHD students’ account a free printing privilege to library printers. I don’t think we RHD students will want to pay so they would go back their office and do free printing there. It would be very much more convenient to be able to print for free at library printers
Thank you for your feedback, please contact your Faculty for further advice on credit for printing.
Required some assistance to locate a journal. Rang general enquiries who directed me to the Chat line on the library page
The librarian who I chatted with was efficient and found the article I was looking for.
A very helpful service for me as a post graduate, off campus student.
Thank you for the feedback !
8/10/2014 The older male behind the front desk to Huxley library (greyish hair, medium build) was rude and arrogant! I asked to borrow an extension cord as there is no power available to parts of the library for me to power my laptop. I have borrowed an extension cord in the past. Instead of stating power cords are no longer available, he lectured me about people breaking the rules by lending a power cord in the first place and that I should of brought my own! In a perfect world, yes I would of brought my own, had I remembered! I did not ask for his opinion, simply asked to borrow a power cord!
Unfortunately, we do not loan out power cords. The Huxley library is a very busy library with students making use of every available space. Due to OH & S issues (trip hazards) it has never been our policy to loan out power boards or extension cords etc. If you have borrowed an extension cord previously, then it was an error, and I apologise for the confusion. I will reinforce the library’s policy to all staff to ensure consistency with our service.
Thank you very much for your feedback
The ebook system is not good- you cant copy out of the book, you cant retain information like you can with a photocopy of a real book – you still have to hand-copy a paragraph or a page of information ; why have ebook? Not a shortcut
Plus they time out???
You cant even keep the ebook in your computer – a BACKWARD STEP — NOT an ALTERNATIVE TO REAL BOOKS
Utterly hopeless plus someone is snooping on my borrowing habits – highly unethical and I hate it
Suggest a real book along with any ebooks in the library
The library has a number of different ‘collections’ which affect the way that you can view, print or download e-books. to help with using ebooks the library has prepared a guide which outlines what are the features of each collection
If you are having problems please contact the library through the “Ask the Library” link with details of the resource you are having issues with and we can assist
I suggested that the 2014 Boyer lectures now be purchased. The reply was that it wasn’t printed yet, but I sent the request to you having received an email from ABC books saying that it was now available. the original request has been ‘closed’ so that’s why I’m using this method to tell you now =). Thankyou, the transcripts are not available online yet so a swift purchase would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
Thank you for the additional information – this TITLE has been ordered and you will be notified when it is available.
