The refurbished Matheson Library will include a new event
 area for rare books exhibition openings.

Work commenced in early December 2014 in the former Building 67 (Information Services Building). This is the first stage of the a major refurbishment of the Matheson Library to conclude in 2016. The building is now a shared zone and stairs, lifts and corridors will be used by staff and the builder and subcontractors.

A section of Level 1 of the building will be barricaded off. The toilets on this level will no longer be available to use. Alternative toilet facilities are available in Building 4.

Please be aware that Building 67 is now a shared zone with the Builder and other subcontractors, This means that stairs, lifts and corridors will be used by both Library Staff and builders.

The project is starting with the lower ground floor including building the new ramp and demolishing the internal wall between the Library and the Performing Arts. This area will be barricaded off to all people other than those registered with the Builder. Please do not enter any work zones.

Access to the loading bay will need to be coordinated as much as possible. Michael Watts is seeking clarification on expected library deliveries to avoid traffic jams and delays The Builder will try to schedule most deliveries to the site early in the morning before normal hours of business.

OHS signs and notices will be installed by Facilities and Services. For any issues, queries or incidents please contact Michael Watts or Paul Bromfield. They will follow up with the project manager Michelle Rysanek. Paul and Michael will be attending all site meetings so staff will be advised of any issues or program of works ahead of time.

All work in Building 67 is due to be completed by mid April 2015. Your patience and understanding over this period will be greatly appreciated.

The group study rooms on Level 1 have now been closed and students should not be in this area unless they wish to access the Rare Books Reading Room which is still open.
Staff and students should not enter work zones.

All work in Building 67, which is Stage 1 of the Matheson refurbishment project, is due to be completed by May 2015. Your patience and understanding over this period will be greatly appreciated.
