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: http://www.library.usyd.edu.au/borrowing/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 - https://opac.library.usyd.edu.au/patroninfo~S4 - to check the status of your loans.

1/6/16

LIBRARY CARDS

Campus Cards processed a large batch of card applications last week so any new or continuing students who recently submitted an application for a Student ID / Library Card should expect to receive their card shortly. Please contact Campus Cards directly if you have any queries about your application: http://sydney.edu.au/campus-cards/

All students should have a Student ID / Library Card. This card identifies you as a LPAB student and you also need it to borrow items from the University of Sydney Library.

The application form for a Student ID / Library Card can be obtained from the ‘Administration’ section of the LEC website. Your card carries over into each semester in which you are enrolled. You do not need to re-apply for a new card each semester.

1/6/16

DISTANCE STUDENT BORROWING

Could all students using this service please ensure, as per the mailing instructions sent with your books, that all return postage to the Library is marked for the attention of the LPAB Distance Loans Officer? This will ensure that all books are checked in as quickly as possible.

1/6/16

LIBRARY GROUP STUDY ROOM BOOKINGS

Due to a change in the booking system, LPAB students are no longer able to use their UniKey login and password to book a Library group study room. We are working on a solution to this problem. In the meantime, if you wish to book a Library group study room, please email Patrick O’Mara, LPAB Liaison Librarian, directly at patrick.omara@sydney.edu.au.

11/7/16

NEW LIBRARY WEBSITE - GUIDANCE FOR LPAB STUDENTS

An email was sent last week to all currently registered students on behalf of Mr Patrick O'Mara, LPAB Liaison Librarian. That email, and the PDF attached to it, gives detailed information, setting out the key features and changes to the Library's website, which Patrick hopes will give students the guidance they need to use the website to its full potential.

If you did not receive that email, here are the links to the text of the email and the overview of the key features. However would you please ensure that your email address showing in the "Personal Details" section of the Webcampus is up to date, so that you will receive any future urgent notifications. If your email address is correct, you may find that the email has gone into your Spam folder.

LIBRARY 24 HOUR SPACES - ACCESS FOR LPAB STUDENTS

As you may be aware, the Law Library and Fisher Library will be open 24/7 from 8am on Monday 25th July.

The Library will still have advertised core operating hours and outside those hours both Libraries will be staffed by security personnel only. Access to and from the buildings outside core operating hours will be via the front entrance to Fisher Library only, with the Law Library being accessible via the internal tunnel on Level 1 of Fisher Library.

Access outside core operating hours will be via swipe card only. This presents difficulties for LPAB students because your 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.

The current arrangements for LPAB students and 24/7 access, until further notice, is as follows:

  • LPAB students can use both the Law Library and Fisher Library on a 24/7 basis but you will need to be inside the Library at the conclusion of the Library’s core operating hours for that day. For example, on Monday 25th July, both Libraries close at 10pm and re-open the following day at 8am. You will need to be inside the Library before 10pm to use the facilities between 10pm and 8am the following day.
  • Because LPAB students do not currently have swipe card access, once you leave the Library outside the core operating hours you will not be able to get back in until core operating hours resume the following morning.
  • Security guards will be doing ID checks throughout the night so you will be required to have your LPAB Student / Library card with you at all times.
  • Exiting outside core operating hours will be via the main Fisher Library entrance. There will be a security guard stationed there throughout the night.

Full details about the Law Library and Fisher Library going 24/7 can be found here: https://news.library.usyd.edu.au/fisher-and-law-libraries-go-247.

If you have any questions at all 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.

Please note that the Family Law examination will be a closed book exam, subject to students being permitted to bring into the examination room unannotated print copies of the following legislation:

Family Law Act 1975 (Cth)

Child Support (Assessment) Act 1989 (Cth)

Marriage Act 1961 (Cth)

provided that such legislation is purchased from the Federal Register of Legislation only. To purchase these Acts, go to https://www.legislation.gov.au/Browse/ByTitle/Acts/InForce/0/0/Principal. Using the search bar, find the required Act. Once this has been found, click on the link to the Act and then select "Buy print copy." DO NOT select "Download", as computer-generated copies will not be permitted in the examination room.

(No text book or other material will be permitted in the examination room.)

Permitted materials may be underlined or highlighted, but must not be otherwise marked or annotated in any way, nor may stickers or flyers be attached to the materials.

Candidates must ensure that they have the specified edition of any book or published legislation. Editions other than those specified will not be permitted in any examination.

Candidates will not be allowed to share permitted materials, nor to use photocopies or computer generated copies in place of originals.

If you have any further queries about this examination and the materials that may be taken into the examination room, you should contact the LPAB's Examinations Officer, Mr Toby Nguyen. Students should contact the LPAB rather than the LEC on matters relating to examinations.
