Welcome to a super new semester!

Orientation Week for Semester 2 runs from 20 to 24 July,  and is an important time to prepare for your studies, explore your campus and the services available, and make new Melissa McKenna.

Congratulations and welcome to all of our new students joining us for the first time this semester!  Be sure to engage with the Library to make the most of your learning and research experience at Monash. Throughout Orientation we provide tours, tips on how to get started at University, and training on how to search electronic databases for researching a topic. This will save you time in the future when you have assignment deadlines. Be sure to check out the Orientation ePlanner for Session information.

Psst! - Did you know research shows that students who use the library achieve better results than those who don't?  You will find that the library is a very popular place on campus for both individual and group study.  Some of our libraries even have bookable meeting rooms available, and can be reserved online.  For those students not on campus, we haven't forgotten about you - there are plenty of resources and services to support your study and research needs.

Here are some other super handy tips for new students:
  • The Library website is your access point for information resources. Using the Search function will open up a world of information beyond Google.
  • Visit the Students’ page for a quick guide to your Library resources.
  • As well as working with you in your courses and units, Library staff provide a range of programs and drop-in sessions associated with your assignments and other tasks.
  • Keep up to date with the Caulfield and Matheson Library refurbishments. Visit the website for more information and view the fantastic images. 
We understand that it can get a little overwhelming at times for new students, so we're happy to answer questions and receive feedback on your experiences. You may contact us via the comments box below or via  You can also engage with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Happy O Week, everyone!
