International Day of People with Disability

Today is International Day of People with Disability(IDPwD), a United Nations sanctioned day that is celebrated internationally on 3 December each year.

The Australian Government has been supporting International Day of Disability since 1996. In 1997, the event was renamed International Day of People with Disability by the Australian community representatives to place emphasis on the abilities and achievements of people living with a disability.

IDPwD is unique community awareness day, as it unites disability organisations, businesses, federal, state and local governments and the community. IDPwP is an opportunity to: celebrate the contributions people with disability make every day to their communities; making a positive contribution to the lives of 4 million Australians with disability.

The Library is also committed to providing all students a receptive and supportive environment with equitable access to all our collections and services. We have dedicated Disability Liaison Librarians on hand to help you and to answer any questions you may have.

We can help by providing longer loan periods, assistance with retrieval of library items or sending items out to you. You need to be registered with the Disability Services to be eligible for specialist support from the library.
