Can you believe it’s nearly the end of the year?! Our staff will be taking a well-earned break over the holiday period. The Library doors may be closed for the University’s annual holiday closure, but that doesn’t mean you can’t access most of our services. So, here’s what you need to know.

The essentials:

  • The Library service points (chat/phone/desks) will be closed during the University’s holiday closure period:  12:30pm Friday 22 December 2023, reopening 9am Tuesday 2 January 2024.
  • Our phone and chat services will run slightly reduced hours from 2nd to 5th January: 9am – 5pm. Returning to regular hours from Monday 8th January 2024.
  • If you are on campus, you can still access study spaces and the Library’s 24/7 collections. Use your Charles Sturt ID card to access these areas and visit our website to check further access details during the break.

Access to resources:

  • Primo Search will search across our on campus and online collections.
  • The discipline specific Library Resource Guides direct you to key journals, databases, websites, standards and other library resources relevant to your study.
  • The A-Z databases page lists all of our databases, you can refine by topic and/or resource type.

Access to help:

Remember, you can always browse our website where you’ll find lots of helpful information, guidance and links to resources. From everyone here at the Library, we’d like to wish you all the best for the coming year, and a restful, happy break.
