What will you discover this week?


ALIA Library Week 2016 web banner

Have you heard? It’s Library and Information Week (23-29 May 2016) this week!

Library and Information Week is about you – our valued students. It’s your chance to discover more of your library. And not by coincidence, Discover More is the theme of this year’s Library Week (see how we sneakily worked that into the story?).

To encourage you to be the David Attenborough’s of our great library land, we have devised a series of fun events and activities for you to enjoy. Now go forth, and discover the abundance of Griffith Library’s resources, facilities, and services.

Choccies and a chat

Date: Wednesday 25 May
Time: 11am – 12 noon
Location: All Campus Libraries
Discover the creamy chocolate goodness of Cadbury (or Nestle #notsponsored) while you chat about your library experiences with lovely library staff. Regale us with stories of late night study sessions, thank us for helping you find all those unfindable resources, or provide tips on how we could improve our services to you. If you have something to say, we are keen to listen… and we have chocolate!

Find the Mad Hatter competition

Ye olde days on Instagram

Most of us have a box of old photos, or a pile of yellowing photo albums, stashed in a cupboard somewhere. And Griffith Library is no different. There are many, many photos of the Libraries whey they were young tackers (OMG, you have to check out Mt Gravatt Library in the 70’s). Well, we are dusting off those old photos and putting them on Instagram. Join us on Instagram all this week to reminisce about ye olde days.
