Bundoora East Library closing down

Bundoora East Library will be permanently closing in November. The last day will be Friday 2 November. Over summer the space will be refurbished into a new facility for higher degree by research students which is expected to open in February 2019.

What will happen to the Library collection?
From 5-9 November, the Bundoora East Library collection will be moved to and combined with the collections at the main Bundoora Library West Library. After that transition week, the whole Bundoora East collection will be available from the Bundoora West Library.

Will I still be able to get help?
From Thursday 8 November Library staff will at the Bundoora East cafe every Tuesday and Thursday between 1-3pm to answer queries. When the academic year starts in 2019 Library staff will be in the cafe every day for the semester 1 from Monday to Friday 1-3pm to answer queries and to help with the new collection lockers.

Students and staff will continue to be able to use the online Ask a Librarian service.

New locker system for collecting books.
Over summer lockers will be installed in Bundoora East Building 251 (next to East Cafe) to allow students and staff to collect Library holds. Students and staff will be able to request items from any RMIT University Library site and collect them from the Bundoora East pickup lockers. Once an item is ready for collection, the user will receive an email with instructions about accessing the locker and collecting the item.
