Semester 2 is a very exciting time of year for the library, with our brand new Level 1 of the Barr Smith Library finally opening its doors today!

Housing over 200 new study spaces with power points, USB and USB-C ports, new specialist collections (Music, Yaitya Ngutupira, and East Asian), computers, and some pretty comfy furniture, this makeover has been a long time coming and is the first significant refurbishment of the Barr Smith Library in many years.

Ask Library is also located on Level 1, and will be staffed from 9am to 5pm, so please speak with a friendly team member if you need any assistance.

We want you to make this space your own – tell us your thoughts!
