Easter Hours Updated


The Morris Miller and Launceston libraries will be open as study spaces from 7am-7pm over the full  Easter break (2-6 April). 

There will be no Library or UConnect services, but we will be open for you to come on in and study.
All other libraries will be closed for the break and will reopen on the 7 April (with the exception of Rozelle campus library which reopens Tuesday 6 April)
Don't forget you can still access most of our resources even if we aren't open.  Search our catalogue to find all our ebooks and ejournals, and have a look at our streaming media that may help in your study (or as a bit of an escape from study!) - ClickView & Kanopy
