Consultations are provided Monday – Friday 9:00am – 5:00pm and are available either face-to-face, by phone, or online.

“Discover More”…in the Library.

Following on from Library & Information Week (23-29 May) and the “Discover More” theme, the Library have put together a small collection of books & reports from our rare and Deposit collection highlighting the history of the University of Canberra Library. Housed in the Library display case on Level B, we encourage you all to visit and have a read of some early interesting facts as to how the Library came to be way back in 1968-69.
