Yikes the library closure

Yikes the library closure dates might be inconvient for Calendar B Education students like me during the Final assessment and exam period. Specially not being able to access General collection and LRS (particularly Curriculum collections) for access and  borrowing.

Hi Chau

Thanks for your comment. Although the general collection will be unavailable as it is being packed for transportation to UTS Central, all e-collection and online journals items will be available as per usual through the library catalogue. In preparation, we encourage you to borrow general collection items prior to 11 November. 

Dear Hsuan - thanks for your

Dear Hsuan-yi - thanks for your question. Yes during the library relocation book returns can be placed in the return chutes located at UTS Buildings 1 & 10. These are located at Building 1, Level 4 (Foyer) and Building 10, via Jones St entry.

Hi there.

Hi there.

What will happen to the old Blake Library?

Will there be a Researcher's Centre/Room in the new UTS Central lIbrary at all?

Hi Jonathan

Thanks for your interest. It has not been confirmed what Building 5A will be used for in the future as yet. We look forward to finding out more once decisions have been finalised. 

Although there will not be a Researcher’s Centre in the new library, the bookable Scholar’s Centre will be available for HDR students, with priority bookings given to research students needing a dedicated space for writing up, or who can’t access facilities elsewhere. Further details regarding the booking process for the Scholar’s Centre will be made available when the library re-opens in November. 

Very, very, very disappointed

Very, very, very disappointed to learn that there will not be a Researcher's Centre in the new libaray. The Researcher's Centre is a great space - very comfortable, very good atmosphere, all contributing to productive work. I am unsure of what the 'Scholar's Centre' is, but if it is in any way similar to the HDR space that is provided to FASS students in Building 10, it will be truly awful! Like frightful little battery hen cages, unpleasant to be in and not at all conducive to thinking or writing. Can this unhappy decision be reversed?
