Changes to services
Access 24/7 services are suspended until further notice.
Document Delivery services may also experience some limitations where other libraries are closed, however, our staff will continue to source these requests where possible.
To reduce the potential risk of spreading of COVID-19, we are quarantining returned and browsed items for 24 hours prior to re-borrowing.
The Student Makerspace at Wollongong Campus Library will be closed until further notice.
We appreciate that these changes may cause some inconvenience, however, the health and safety of both students and staff is a priority. Expert staff can be contacted to assist you with any concerns or queries, including via our Live Chat service.
Updates will be provided here, as well as direct communications via the MyUOW app (opt-in to the Library channel), Facebook and Twitter.
