Library Shelfies on display at your campus library

In case you missed it, we held a #libraryshelfie competition during July and August.

We had a bunch of creative entries on Insta. Then we got you to vote on your faves to determine the winner.

The competition’s done and dusted, but we loved your shelfies so much we wanted to keep them around for a bit!

Yeah, we posted them online. But we decided that wasn’t enough. Nope – we decided to bring the online, offline, and have a gallery of entries IRL.

Come along to your nearest Griffith University campus library and view the #libraryshelfie gallery. Which one’s your favourite?

The gallery will be on display until Friday 14 September.

Oh, and don’t forget to follow @GriffithLibrary on Instagram! 


And the winner of our 2018 Library Shelfie competition is…

5 reasons why you should follow our Instagram

Not only are we the best library blog on the planet, we are even dominating #socialmedia. You see, we’ve got Twitter and Facebook, but today is all about the #Insta!

  1. 1. We care about our #students, give #studytips and remind you referencing is kind of a big deal, with #consequences.
  2. 2. We use our degrees to teach you about native Australian flora such as #wattles being technically a fluorescence, not a flower!
  3. 3. We give some good #motivational advice to help you #succeed with your #studies.
  4. 4. We like #libraries and #librarians even when they aren’t our own and love we kept #oldschoollibrarian photos!
  5. 5. We love #books and #animals – and let’s be honest, if you don’t love those things, should we really be #friends?

In fact, one user said they’ve “been astonished by” our “awesome work for some time” and we are choosing to believe it’s not a bot due to our popularity over QUT Library Instagram!

P.S. We are just playing with you QUT Library, we actually love you guys and the playful rivalry we have together!
