Matheson Library to close for four weeks in early 2016

The refurbishment of the Sir Louis Matheson Library at the Clayton campus is progressing well and the first stage will be completed before Christmas. The next stage is now underway and heavy demolition will be carried out in January. 

To allow the demolition to be completed more efficiently, Matheson Library will be closed from Monday 11 January and will reopen on Monday 8 February 2016.

During this four-week closure, Monash staff and students can:
  • use Search to request items held at Matheson Library for pick up at any other library including at the Law Library and Hargrave-Andrew Library on the Clayton campus. There may be some delays as Matheson staff will only have access to the collections for short periods each day.
  • return items due at any other library or via the after-hours returns outside Matheson Library.
  • find study spaces at the two other libraries on the campus.
  • get advice and ask questions at an Information point at any other library, through, or by telephone (03 9905 5054).
Due to the closure, Search temporarily does not allow staff and students to select 'Matheson' as the pick-up location when requesting items from other libraries.

From Friday, 8 January, all Matheson holds available for collection can be picked up at the Law Library or Hargrave-Andrew Library.

Members of the public may wish to visit our other libraries on campus. Please consult the map.
  • Law Library – 15 Ancora Imparo Way
  • Hargrave-Andrew Library – 13 College Walk
We apologise for this disruption and ask for your patience through the coming months as this exciting project takes shape.
