I would like to take the time to write my praise for Andrews services as a librarian. In the past (few years) he has continually played an important part in my academic journey. I am thankful for the speed and accuracy he takes in my search for relevant material needed. It is hard (for most students) to have a road (mind) map to follow and successfully complete work needed.It is imperative to have the guidance required. Anthony provides this to me and i am sure to all students that are fortunate enough to come in contact with him who gain his valuable services. I am thankful for his friendly, polite, patient and encouraging professional manner.

Thank you for your feedback.

HELLO, THE FACILITIES IN THE LIBRARY AT THE NEW CAMPUS HERE IN ELIZABETH STREET IS QUIET BETTER THAN BATHURST STREET. IN SPITE OF THIS, I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST FOR DOORS TO BE PUT TO DEFINE A QUIET ZONE FROM OTHER AREAS. AS IT IS RIGHT NOW, THERE IS NO QUIET ZONE AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE ARE BACK IN BATHURST, AND THIS WILL DEFINITELY GET WORSE FROM 26TH JULY AS MORE STUDENTS COME IN.

PLEASE, PUTTING DOORS IN THE SUPPOSED ‘QUIET ZONE’ WOULD ENABLE STUDENTS THAT PREFER TO STUDY WITHOUT NOISE AND THOSE THAT WANT TO DO GROUP STUDYING ACHIEVE THEIR PURPOSE.
THANKS

Thank you for your feedback. While it is not possible to add doors to the quiet study area, we will ensure students understand the zoning in the new library and campus.

If you have further concerns or are disturbed by other students, please see the library staff who can assist with asking students to respect the zone or helping you find alternative seating.

Hi, I am writing to place a suggestion to return to the original set-up for APA referencing guide.  The old guide was quick and easy to use, with good examples.  The update that has been made to the website is terrible and not at all user friendly, I have to say I am extremely disappointed. Thanks for your time, warm regards.  Virginia

Dear Virginia,
The guide has the same or similar content as before if you are experiencing difficulties in using the guide please contact a Librarian at a service desk for further assistance.

The post grad. student room in the Auchmuty is cold. Not just a little colder than I might like it. I mean really cold – significantly colder than the rest of the library. This really does need to be looked into. Rather annoying when library staff tell you there is nothing to be done. I don’t expect instant results, but there must some way of getting it looked into. If you come into the post grad. room, especially at night, and see students with their coats and beenie’s left on and then go into the AIC, you will notice the difference.

Thanks for the feedback – we will ask IFS to investigate

Hi I am a regular user of the library and have to do a lot of printing during the duration of my course.
Though this is a small issue I wanted to bring it up as it can be easily rectified.
Could we have a stapler in the AIC capable of stapling a large number of pages together? I understand that there is one in the library on the level above but it is sometimes very hard to leave all my personal belongings in the AIC that could be stolen and go upstairs all for the sake of a stapler.
Thank you for your understanding.

Thank you for your feedback. Print charging covers the cost of paper and toner, the staplers provided for student use is a cost absorbed by the Library as a courtesy.
Due to the high volume of printing at the 24/7 environment a standard size stapler is the only size available as they are replaced on a weekly basis.

Why the heck is aircon switched off in late arvo at flowers reading room?! I’m freezing to death !

Thanks for your feedback – the Library is currently on extended hours for the exam period . The AIC was reset to accommodate the longer hours. It would seem the settings didn’t update for 20/6
