You will be able to access computers, study rooms and study carrels on level one, computers and photocopiers on the landing of level two, newspapers, vending coffee machine, cold water dispenser and toilets.
This new service is the solution for students who work part or full time, and for others who simply want the option of being able to study in a secure environment away from their home, at any time of the day or night.

When you get a chance, come and see our latest display on level 2 of the Launceston Campus Library. From the establishment of the buildings at Newnham to house the Launceston Teachers College, through to the consolidation of facilities for the Tasmanian College of Advanced Education and on to the TSIT days prior to becoming part of the University of Tasmania. The display looks at Campus life, facilities and in particular how the library has evolved.
Over the break, contractors have been making changes to the Launceston Campus Library. These are to prepare us for the introduction of 24/7 opening from early in Semester 2, 2012. Swipe card access, security phone and cameras and a water chiller are all currently being installed. Stay tuned for more information.
The Library’s Marketing Group ran a competition this year, to see if our advertisements of Library services placed in the TUU student diaries were being noticed and also to draw attention to the Library’s news blog. Notes were included in our ads, asking students to go to the blog for details. Here they were asked to tear out our ad from the diary, add their student number and contact details and then to drop it into the Library suggestion boxes in the Morris Miller, Launceston or Cradle Coast libraries. We had a huge response from all three campuses. The winner of the $100 Co-op Bookshop voucher was James Shrimpton. James is based in Launceston and can be seen here with his prize. thank you to everyone who participated.
