The Library will be closed from 12pm on Friday 24th December, re-opening on Monday 10th January 2011. During this time you may still place Get It requests but they will not be actioned by Library staff until we re-open. If possible, please delay placing Get It requests until this time. Thank you for your consideration.
Thanks to all those who took part in the Library’s 2010 survey of students and staff, called LibQUAL. Currently the responses are being analysed and three lucky respondents have each received a $200 Coles Myer Voucher. Everyone wins eventually, as we’ll make improvements to our collections and services based on your suggestions and the information you’ve given us. So thanks again for participating – you’ll hear more about the improvements we’re planning over the next months.
From Monday 1st November until Friday 12th November, the Science Library foyer will host Solving the Puzzles of the Universe, a display from the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR). The world’s best and brightest minds are working at ICRAR to further our understanding of the Universe. Solving the Puzzles of the Universe highlights the four main areas of research undertaken by ICRAR and their attempts to piece together parts of this puzzle. This display has been created by Science Communication students from the University of Western Australia.
To help us gather feedback on the UWA LibGuides service we are asking students to take a few minutes to participate in a short survey. All completed survey entries will go in the running to win an iTunes voucher.
Thanks to everyone who participated. This survey has now closed.

Coming to the UWA Open Day on Sunday 15th August? Visit any one of the seven UWA subject libraries to see what it's like to be a university student (you'll spend a lot of time in the library as a student!).
