UQ Gatton Library collection open 24/7

From 23 July, the collection in the UQ Gatton Library is available 24/7 with your UQ ID card. This change makes the Library an even better place to study and collaborate.

The collection is available to everyone:

  • 8.30am-6pm Monday-Thursday
  • 8.30am-5pm Friday

Outside of staffed hours, touch your UQ ID card to the reader at the entry to the collection.

Borrow and return items

In the collections area you can find:

  • General collection: regular items for loan 
  • High-Use items: learning resources (required and recommended course readings) available as short loans
  • Requested items: items that have been placed on hold or requested by document delivery and are awaiting pick-up
  • Self-service machines to borrow items

Borrow items

Borrow items at the self-service machine with your UQ ID card. We will email you a receipt that contains the date and time when the items are due back.

Return items

Return High-Use items in the collections area:

  1. Check the item in on the self-service machine
  2. Place the returned item on the Returns trolley next to the machine. The item is immediately available to others.

Return all other items, including requested items, via the returns chute.
