Exciting news - The front of the Library is being remodelled!

We’re excited to announce that the North Wing Level 3 entrance is being remodelled to provide a new and more flexible experience for students and staff.

The new space will feature user-friendly areas for individual and collaborative learning and peer assisted coaching along with purpose built exhibition facilities.



We are also looking forward to delivering a brand new customer focussed service model.
The project is due for completion by April 2017.

In the meantime, the Library and IT help desks have been temporarily relocated to North Wing Level 2.


We thank you for your patience while work is in progress.

Library and IT service points relocation

The Library North Wing Level 3 entrance area is being remodelled to provide new, more flexible and user-friendly facilities.

The new space will feature:

  • a one-stop-shop for Library and IT help, with a customer-focused service delivery model,
  • flexible space for individual and collaborative learning, including peer assisted coaching, and
  • space for events, exhibitions and social activities.

Building work is beginning over the semester break and so Library and IT service points will be temporarily relocating from Level 3 to the Learning Common area in North Wing Level 2 of the Library. 

Services will close at 12 noon on Friday 23rd December to allow the relocation to occur. Library and IT service points will re-open on Level 2 on 5th January and 9th January respectively.

Thank you for your patience while work is in progress. Information and updates will be posted on the Library and IT websites. Email libhelp@murdoch.edu.au to provide feedback.
