What we do

Vision

  • We will be dynamic and innovative in the co-creation of knowledge.
  • We will lead where required, partner as needed and collaborate with all those who seek to build academic success for our students and impact for our researchers.
  • We will think globally and act bravely in our delivery of quality information, learning and research services.
  • We will put our students and staff at the centre of everything we do.
We shape the education and research experience, transforming how students and staff discover, access, use and create knowledge

Locations

There are four Library sites in Melbourne and two Library sites in Vietnam. Each Library provides a range of study environments, including flexible group study areas and silent individual study spaces. All our libraries have extensive computer facilities, wi-fi access and long opening hours.
