Library Connect July / August 2023

You are here

This edition of Library Connect has the usual listing of new books and some information about the department’s subscription to Australian Standards Online.  Alex will be on leave from 21 August to 18 September, but the library will be open for self-serve borrowing. Just put the details of the book/s borrowed with your name and email or contact number in the book on the front counter and she will check them out when she returns.  The “click and collect” boxes in the Visitor Centre are still available for returning items if that is easier for you.
