Caulfield Library has reopened today via a temporary entrance from the arcade level 1 tunnel between Buildings A and B.
|A bank of brand-new Macintosh computers|
Approximately half the total space is now open for use, including 500 seats and open access to collections.
When completed, the library will have a total of 1500 seats.
Study and teaching spaces
Wireless is available on levels 1, 3 and 4 so students can use their devices. The computers on levels 3 and 4 can be used beginning Thursday 23 February, including a large number of brand new Macintosh computers.
There are five discussion rooms for group work and these rooms will be bookable after they have been fitted with 'plug and play' technology (coming soon). Two more discussion rooms will be added when the rest of the library is opened.
Three large teaching rooms are located on level 1 and will be available from Monday 27 February. Initially, these rooms will only be accessible via a separate entrance from the Ian Potter Sculpture courtyard on the south end of Building A. Students should note that there will be no access to the rest of the library spaces from this area due to construction hoardings while builders complete the remaining works.
Staff and students can again request items from other campuses via Search and choose Caulfield Library as the pick-up location. Holds are now located on level 1 where the temporary entrance is. Please note: items on shelf at Caulfield cannot be requested for pick-up at the same library. Users should retrieve the items and borrow them at the Information point. From Tuesday 21 February, users can use the self-loan machines with their Monash ID.
