IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT BORROWING FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY LIBRARY

There are significant fines for the non-return of high demand items and lost material. Items borrowed from the Library (including from the Law and Law Reserch collections) are subject to the fine conditions listed here:

https://library.sydney.edu.au/libraries/fines.html

Overdue and recall notices are sent to students via email but as a courtesy only and the Library does not accept responsibility for the non-receipt of emails. Therefore it is important to regularly log in to My Loans to check the status of your loans.

LIBRARY 24 HOUR SPACES - ACCESS FOR LPAB STUDENTS

The Herbert Smith Freehills Law Library and Fisher Library are open 24/7.
The Library still has advertised Information Desk hours – see the drop down menu for each Library at https://library.sydney.edu.au/libraries/locations.html. Outside those hours both the Law Library and Fisher Library are staffed by security personnel only.
LPAB Student / Library cards are not currently enabled with swipe card access. Negotiations between different stakeholders at the University to rectify this are ongoing and you will be notified as soon as this is resolved. However, LPAB students are still able to access the Law Library and Fisher Library 24/7.


The current arrangements for LPAB students and 24/7 access, until further notice, is as follows:
- During Information Desk hours you can enter the Law Library directly as normal.
- Access to and from the Law Library and Fisher Library outside Information Desk hours is via the front entrance to Fisher Library only, with the Law Library being accessible via the internal tunnel on Level 1 of Fisher Library.
- A security guard is stationed inside the entrance to Fisher Library at all times. Just attract the attention of the security guard, show your student ID / Library card through the glass doors and the door to Fisher Library will be opened for you.
- The security guards will be doing ID checks throughout the night so make sure you have your card with you at all times.
- Exiting both Libraries after Information Desk hours is also via the main Fisher Library entrance.  


Full details about 24/7 services at the Law Library and Fisher Library can be found here: https://news.library.usyd.edu.au/fisher-and-law-libraries-go-247/.
If you have any questions at all, or have any difficulties accessing the Library via the above arrangements, please contact Patrick O’Mara, LPAB Liaison Librarian directly at patrick.omara@sydney.edu.au. Please do not direct your enquiry to the Law Extension Committee.
Kind regards

Patrick

LIBRARY GROUP STUDY ROOM AND INDIVIDUAL DESK BOOKINGS
Due to a change in the online booking system, LPAB students are no longer able to use their UniKey login and password to book a group study room or individual desk in the Library. We are working on a solution to this problem.
In the meantime, if you wish to book a Library group study room, you can do so by contacting the Information Desk at the Law Library or Fisher Library, either face to face or over the phone.

Contact details and operating hours for the Law Library and Fisher Library Information Desks can be found here.

Borrowing

As there is no access to the Library during the Closedown, no books will be able to be borrowed after 5pm Friday 22 December 2017 until 9am Monday 8 January 2017. Library items (including any items that you have borrowed that are recalled) will not have a due date that falls during the closedown period. Items will not be required to be returned until after the Library Closedown.

 

Distance student borrowing

Distance students should submit all requests for distance loans as soon as possible from now to have the best chance of obtaining their chosen item, as requested items may not be immediately available and may need to be recalled on your behalf.  The deadline for requests is Tuesday 19th December. Requests sent after this date will not be processed until after the Library Closedown.

 

Access to online resources

Access to online resources will be available as usual during the Library Closedown. However, there will be no Library staff present during the Closedown to assist you with troubleshooting.
