Library Connect December 2023 / January 2024

You are here

This edition of Library Connect has the usual listing of new books, two new photographs for the art collection and a couple of articles on successful citizen science projects and distribution shifts in Australian alpine plants. 

The library is staffed Mon - Fri 9.30 - 4.30 or Alex can be contacted by email or phone (02 6250 9480) if you need assistance.

The “click and collect” boxes in the Visitor Centre are still available for returning items, and Alex is very happy to leave items there for collection if that’s easier than visiting the library.
