Your library is having a little work done…


…while you’re on vacation.

From Monday, November 23 the libraries at Mt Gravatt, Nathan and Gold Coast are having a little work done.

At Mt Gravatt your Collaboration Zone is getting a makeover. At Nathan new furniture including individual study pods are arriving. And at Gold Coast your new Research Zone will be fitted out with individual and quiet group study spaces.

All the work will be complete by the time ‘O’ week 2016 rolls around.

Your library opening hours during construction remain the same.

We’ll keep you updated as work progresses on each site – remember to grab a set of earplugs from the library counter if you’re finding it noisy.

And we promise you donuts when the work is all done!

We owe you a donut….and maybe an Easter egg….

donutsIt’s been a bit noisy in the collaboration zone at Nathan over the past couple of weeks – we’d like to say sorry using the time honoured tradition of free donuts.

So, see you tomorrow in the N53 collaboration zone on level 2 from 10am to Demo a Donut!

See what we did there? DEMOlish a Donut? During demolition of level 0?



N53 level 0 construction continues

donutsIt’s been a bit noisy in the Nathan library this past week – our construction team are completing demolition in the new level 0 staff space.

Demolition is almost complete, the team will begin putting things back together next week. We’re still aiming for completion in early May.

We’ll come and deliver some donuts to you in the collaboration zone in the next couple of weeks – watch out for our ‘Demo a Donut’ posts!



N53 staff space – construction begins…

Lori Cartoon Character with AlphaThe Willett Centre N53 (where Student Administration, Griffith International, the Honours College and your Library are located) will see some demolition and construction activity over the next few months. It shouldn’t affect you directly, since the work is taking place on level 0 which is a staff area.

There will be periods of the day (before 7.30am and after 5.30pm) when we will need to remove construction debris or take deliveries away. The best way to do this is through the Nathan Undercroft, so parts of the Undercroft will be closed to pedestrian access from time to time.  Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to get though to the Enternet Cafe and Student Services.  Just remember to follow safety instructions from the construction team from Oasis Construction.

G11 External stair closes


Work will be carried out on the G11 external stair from tomorrow, Saturday, July 13.

Please use the lift or internal fire stair to access levels 3 and 4.

Remember to follow safety instructions from our contractors or university staff. Stay alert around construction works and stay safe.

GH1 library relocating July 8

From Monday, July 8 -12 the print collection at GH1 (CMOH) along with Information Services staff will relocate to the G10 library at Parklands. The print collection for medical and dental students will be integrated into the G10 print collection located on level 3.

We look forward to welcoming our dental and medical students home as they continue their studies in G40 and at the Gold Coast University Hospital. And in your library, of course!

The library offers  you group and quiet study space, commonuse computers and bookable presentation practice rooms. In the G11 Learning Commons you’ll find the new Gumurrii Student Support Unit, seminar and meeting rooms and a brand new 24/7 study space.

During the relocation and integration of the print collection access will be restricted. Please see library and IT help staff for the latest information.
