Our library spans 11 locations and contains more than 5.2 million items. More than just a repository of information, the library is also the perfect place to set up your laptop or meet your study group and get to work.
Our library’s collection of journals, books, ebooks and multimedia roughly translates to 100,000 items per student – so it’s a good thing we have a team of professional librarians and faculty liaisons to guide you on your research journey.
These days, the library is everywhere. Need to find your prescribed readings or the answer to an obscure question at pub trivia?
As long as you have an internet connection, you can access our online catalogue.
Your UniKey is your key to access this gateway to our extensive hardcopy collection as well as 320,000 ebooks, 70,000 ejournals, and 1.7 million digital theses.
For students and staff, your student card or staff ID is your borrower’s card. Your UniKey lets you place items on hold, pay for photocopying and printing, access library computers and pay overdue fines.
You can borrow a number of standard library items. High priority items including prescribed course textbooks are kept in a reserve section, which can be taken out for two hours at a time.
Staff and students also get access to the Bonus+ collection. This lets you reserve and borrow items from other university libraries, and select your preferred pickup location once they arrive.
We welcome non-staff and students from the wider community to apply for a library borrower’s card. The annual cost and borrowing privileges vary depending on the type of membership you’re eligible for.
If you’re affiliated with the University in some way, it’s likely you can join at a discount. Check our membership categories for more information.
