Matheson Library reopens

The Sir Louis Matheson Library at the Clayton campus reopened on Monday 8 February after a four-week closure that allowed heavy demolition work to occur.

The void will open into a courtyard on the lower ground floor.
The refurbishment continues and will be completed by the end of the year.

The three-stage project was designed to allow for study spaces to continue to be available to students, however, a reduction in available seating is unavoidable throughout the refurbishment. Once completed, Matheson Library will have 25% more seats and provide a vastly improved environment.

By the start of semester, new individual study and bookable discussion rooms for group projects and study, as well as two large teaching rooms, will be available. The teaching rooms can be used by students as study spaces when they are not booked for library classes.

Access to the collections

Library users can access the General Collection and Journals on Levels 2-5. The Music Collection is now located on Level 2 and the Ada Booth Slavic and the Asian Collections (formerly Asian Studies Research Collection) are now on Level 1.

Items located in the compactus require staff assistance. Please ask at the information point.

With the reopening of the library, users can again request items from other campuses via Search and choose Matheson Library as the pick-up location. Holds are now located to the left of the entrance.

Remember: if a copy is on shelf at the same campus as your pick-up location, you should retrieve the item yourself.
