Temporary changes to library hours and services

Print collections start to reopen

From 15 June, print collections are gradually starting to reopen on a self-service basis.

You can borrow and return items at these locations. You require your UQ ID card to borrow, and for access to library spaces after-hours and the high-use and requested items sections.

In the interests of physical distancing in libraries (PDF, 140KB) to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, we have closed some library locations and services until further notice. Some 24/7 study spaces are available (UQ ID card required) but you must practise physical (social) distancing. 

The Library is still open online to help you continue your study, teaching, and research. See Library COVID-19 updates for more information.

Some locations closed until further notice

Access to Library collections

For the health and safety of our clients, library print/physical collections are closed. 

There is no need to return any of your current loans until library print collections reopen. However, loans can be returned via the returns chute on level one of Central Library.

Requests and loan recalls

Item requests and loan recalls are suspended until further notice.

Document delivery

Until further notice, we are unable to:

  • provide document delivery of print items
  • digitise journal articles and book chapters from our print collection

We will continue to supply articles from other libraries where we can provide access electronically.
