The Library provides high quality information resources and services, recognising the diversity and needs of all stakeholders. We strive to be responsive and innovative in our service delivery and to be a vital contributor to the academia of the University.

There are a number of service points across campus where you will find welcoming comfortable facilities suitable for individual and group learning. Assistance with sourcing and evaluating library resources and developing your search skills is readily available from our friendly, knowledgeable staff.
