There’s a lot to look forward to at Swanston Library next year

We’re excited to be opening the newly transformed Swanston Library during the first half of 2017. The Swanston Library transformation will provide contemporary, vibrant and comfortable Library spaces which will cement the Library’s place at the centre of the student experience.

As we progressively open the brand new Library spaces there will be some changes over summer and beyond. The dates may change but current projections are:

Summer holidays (25 November till mid-February)
Only Level 6 of Swanston Library will be open. The entry will be moved to Level 6 and you will be able to return your Library items on Level 6. In order to relocate the Library’s physical collection we may have to close Swanston Library for a period of time.

Semester 1 (mid-February till end of July)
We’ll be progressively unveiling the vibrant new Library spaces, in stages, throughout the semester.

Semester 2 (end of July onwards)
All the new Library spaces will be open.

Throughout this transition we will continue to provide the same high-quality Library service and we will continue to provide maximum possible access to collections and study spaces.
