Exhibition: A Walk Through Time 

Dates: 9th September - 8th November 2019

The exhibition A Walk Through Time captures the UTS Library in a period of change as we prepared to move building from the Haymarket campus to the new UTS Central building. 

In conjunction with the Library’s relocation and this event, staff and students are encouraged to contribute to a time capsule that will be ‘buried’ in the Library Retrieval System (LRS) and remain unopened until 2050. The time capsule will be on display at the Library’s entrance, Level 7 of UTS Central from 25 November before being buried in the depths of the LRS waiting to be opened by the future Librarians of 2050.
