Semester 1 Extended Library Opening Hours – Update


Last week we brought you news of changes to the library opening hours for the rest of semester 1 (see the post here).

Since then, there have been a few more changes to the opening hours. Over the next two weeks heading to exams and the end of the semester, the Gold Coast and Nathan campus libraries will extend their opening hours further.

Here is a run down of the extended hours:

Mondays through to Thursdays, from 28 May to 7 June, the library opening hours will be 7am to 1am. This provides students with extra study hours in the lead up to, and including, study week. Services will open from 8am and close at 10pm.

On Friday 1 June, the library opening hours will be 7am to 6.30pm (Nathan campus) and 7am to 6.00pm (Gold Coast campus). Services will open at 8am as normal.

On Friday 8, Saturday 2 and 9 and Sunday 3 and 10 June, all libraries will be open extended hours (last minute study time for you all before exams!) For specific times, please check the website.

If you are still a bit confused, please speak to a staff member in your library and remember, you can always check the library hours schedule.

Happy studying!

    Re: GC campus
    I think the extended hours are excellent. Please consider extending them more often / permanently.

    The library is a much nicer place to study than the g02 24 hr lab.

    The extra desks and chairs at the end of each shelf are a clever use of space. The expansion of the silent study area is probably the highlight for me.

    One area that could be improved is reducing the amount of litter. It is everywhere! The bins are overflowing and ought to be emptied more regularly. It is not a good look in an otherwise nice library.

    Thanks again for the extended hours!

      Hi, C.Louise
      Thanks for your feedback – although these hours are temporary for semester 1, it will be the students’ feedback, like yours, that will determine what happens with library hours in the future. So thanks again for contributing!

  4. Dear Sir/Madam, Library staff, hi,
    Thank you for the extended hours to fecilitate the students for ‘quite study’ with the library/computer facility is really great!
    I come all the way from Lamb Island (even on holidays) to sit and read in the ‘quite study” area of our library, which is a wonderful help and assistance.
    Myself and on behalf of all Griffith students, I once again thank our Griffith management/library staff for their awesome co-operation and help.
    Thank you,

      Hi, Liz

      The extended hours only apply to Nathan and Gold Coast – were you looking for a specific date? If in doubt, I would always ask a librarian in your library! It can be a bit confusing because most days are running on different opening hours!

    I have really enjoyed the extended hours, it is great especially coming up into exam period. I think the extended hours should be throughout the whole academic semester as it would really help out us students with our studies šŸ™‚

    The extended hours were amazing!! It was great this year to finally see extra chairs and desks added and along with others I also find the library a much nicer place to study, G02 is disgusting! Please let us students know if there is any possible way of helping to extend the hour permanently. ( 24hrs would be amazing! šŸ˜‰ )

    Thank you so much again, it was a great help during exam time šŸ™‚
