Early text book advice encouraged

The Library’s online collections and support staff have remained available through remote access recent weeks, but now the team is back in the building, opening up branches and encouraging staff to advise on what text books are needed for next semester – with delays in deliveries expected.

A successful pilot of the Library’s Central branch 24/7 spaces was undertaken over the weekend and the team is now making sure all spaces and physical collections transition into the ‘new normal’. All branches are expected to be open and operational by 25 May. For Library updates, please visit its COVID-19 web page.

Semester 2 textbooks 

Topic coordinators for Semester 2 are advised that now is a good time to let the library know of required textbooks.

The University textbook form is the official way to alert the Library of textbook needs. This form can also be accessed from the Library Readings page for Teaching Staff and via your FLO site.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 related restrictions are impacting on delivery of textbooks. Accordingly, please be mindful that students and the Library may not be able to procure print textbooks in a timely fashion (if at all in some instances.)

The earlier staff can provide their textbook information, the greater the chance the textbooks will be available to students in time for Semester 2.

For any assistance, please contact the Learning Access Team via a Readings Query in Service One.
