Matheson and Caulfield libraries set to re-open on 20 February

Both the Sir Louis Matheson and Caulfield libraries will reopen on Monday 20 February 2017 in time for Orientation Week. The summer closure of the two libraries has been extended to finish major building works.

Temporary borrowing arrangements are in place until the re-openings so that Monash staff and students can continue to borrow from both libraries.

Matheson Library

Caulfield Library 
  • Request items for pick-up at Room T103, Ground Floor, Building T from Monday to Friday, 8am - 6pm or at any of our other libraries.
  • Return items at Room T103 from 7am - 7pm during the week or anytime if you have swipe card access. You may also return items at any of our other libraries during library hours or the after-hours returns at Law Library at Clayton.
Critical functions such as the preparation of reading lists for Semester 1 units continue unimpeded. 

If you need advice from Library staff or have any questions, go to an Information point at any other library, through ask.monash.edu, or by telephone (03 9905 5054).

We apologise for the delays and ask for your patience through the final stages of these projects.

  1. I am surprised at the huge west-facing glass wall. What is its thermal efficiency? How is that achieved?

    1. Another element of the building, the shadehouse, is yet to be constructed. This will be a mesh shield that will protect the western facade from the sun while allowing visibility into and out of the Library. The whole building has been designed to operate effectively and sustainably. More information about the shadehouse was published a few months ago: https://goo.gl/hDzvue
