Griffith Library Instagram feed

We’ve seen some of you over on the @griffithlibrary Instagram, and we appreciate all your likes and comments. Fist bump to all our regulars!

But for those of you who aren’t familiar with our feed, maybe now’s the time to take a peek. You can see pics from our fabulous library events, like the recent weekend Hack-a-thon at the Gold Coast.

And it’s not just photos – we’ve dabbled with mini video content such as Boomerang and Instagram Stories. Check out the Boomerang of our massive Hack-a-thon cheque. Cool, right?

While we aim to keep you up-to-date with all the latest library resources and services, we also like to have a little fun on Insta. Okay, so maybe a lot of fun.

We keep you entertained with humorous, motivational or inspirational quotes, like the one we posted recently by Timothy Healy.

There’s also our semi-regular #bookfacefriday posts. Because who doesn’t enjoy seeing how creative some folk can be with their face, a book cover, and a mobile phone? Here’s one we posted a few days ago.

And as much as you’ll flip over the #bookfacefriday posts, you’ll love our behind-the-scenes snaps of our beloved library staff and lovely library spaces even more. Don’t you just dig this shot of one of our more colourful staff members?

Head over to Insta and scroll through the @griffithlibrary feed. If you like what you see, be sure to give us a Follow.


Our libraries are now official Safe Places for LGBTI students

Have you seen these bright and beautiful stickers popping up around the library?

Well, these stickers aren’t just pretty, they actually hold a lot of importance and identify all our Griffith Libraries as LGBTI Safe Places!

Our libraries have always been a safe place for everyone to explore any topic and not be judged. But through the LGBTI Safe Place initiative, Griffith Libraries have gone one step further.

The initiative is all about creating an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust by providing a safe place for our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) students and staff to work and study.

We invite you to show your support, and learn a few things, by completing the Walking in Rainbow Shoes e-module in your learning@griffith.

The e-module provides information on the best way to create a prejudice-free environment.  It helps redirect inappropriate questions into a more understanding culture that identifies a person – not ‘people’ – and welcome them into a safe place to be themselves, free of judgement.

The LGBTI Safe Place Library Launch

On Thursday 15 September 2016, the Safe Place initiative will be launched by Pro Vice Chancellor for Information Services, Linda O’Brien, along with Pro Vice Chancellor for Engagement, Professor Martin Betts. 

So please join us from 1pm in the Nathan Library foyer to celebrate this fantastic achievement that demonstrates Griffith is a place where everyone belongs.

Light refreshments and cake will be provided.
