Morris Miller Library is very pleased to be hosting a display of Kate Piekutowski’s artwork. The display will run throughout February.
Kate is an Australian/Polish artist who predominantly works in the print industry. She is currently undertaking Masters of Fine arts in Tasmania which will be completed June 2013.
Through the medium of etching, Kate explores cultural identity within her prints. The works reflect on her disconnection to her Polish heritage and ancestors. Being a first-generation child of migrants, she is intrigued by the concept of belonging.
Kate Piekutowski is an emerging artist who has exhibited in Inka Gallery, Stable Gallery, Entrepot Gallery, Long Gallery, Rebecca Roth Gallery, Goulburn Street Gallery, Preachers and The Henry Jones Hotel. She is also exhibiting with Upraw Gallery in Sydney and PG Gallery and BES62 in Melbourne.

Morris Miller Library is offering postgraduate coursework degree students and graduate research candidates a designated space on level 3. The space offers a quiet and comfortable office-style area which is available during the library’s staffed hours
In planned future redevelopment of levels 3 and 4 of Morris Miller Library it is hoped to offer a dedicated postgrad space with 24/7 swipe card access. For further information please contact your Liaison Librarian or contact the Morris Miller Library Client Service desk on 6226 2227, email Libr...@utas.edu.au
After the successful introduction of 24/7 swipe card access to MML in Easter last year, we monitored the gate counts and client service desk enquiries in weeks 3 and 4 of both semester 1 and semester 2. We found that staff/student interactions between 9 and 10 pm were very low indeed. On the other hand, Security statistics indicated that students have taken full advantage of accessing the library after staffed hours.
In light of this, MML opening hours were reviewed and, during semester, the library will now close at 9 pm. This will also align with Launceston campus library hours (Branch libraries close at 8 pm).

We expect the builders will complete the Morris Miller Library Level 2 renovations this Friday, 15 October. That will mean we regain access to the Learning Hub areas on Level 2.
A small amount of painting, wallpapering etc will need to be carried out but we expect this will not disrupt students studying, especially bearing in mind that it will be SWOT week next week.
It has been a long project, for students and staff alike, and we are grateful for your patience.
As of the week starting 23 August, the opening hours for Special Collections will be as follows:
Monday - Closed
Tuesday to Thursday - 09:30 – 13:00
Friday - 11:00 – 13:00
Should you require assistance when the Special Collections office is closed, you will be able to use the phone on Level 5 to contact staff.
