Access changes to Level 2 North

Starting Monday 3 April 2023, the Library will begin its refurbishment of Level 2 of the Barr Smith Library. The areas to be refurbished include the Reading Room, the Reading Room Foyer, and Level 2 North. This exciting revamp will see our spaces revitalised and print collections easier to find.

The first stage of the refurbishment will be in the Reading Room. There will be no access to the Reading Room from 3 April 2023. Alternative quiet study spaces are available on Level 1 South and Level 2.

Access to items held in the Reading Room (941-999 Main Collection) is available by request via Library Search. **Please note that from 11 April to 16 April there will be completely no access and any requests placed during this time will be not be able to be collected until Monday 17 April.

We will be posting regular updates to help you navigate the upcoming changes and keep you informed! We look forward to providing an improved library experience for our community.
