Changes to ANU Library services during High campus alert level

A limited Click & Collect service will be offered.
24 August 2021

As the ANU COVIDSAFE campus alert has moved to Amber, some ANU Library services will change to provide greater access and support to the ANU community. These will remain in place until the campus alert level returns to ‘low’.

Recording lectures

The JB Chifley Library will remain accessible 24/7 for essential ANU staff, with permission to access the building for recording or streaming lectures. You will need your ANU ID card to gain entry.

Study rooms 4.06 and 4.07 on level 4 of the JB Chifley Library are equipped to record your lectures using Echo360 universal capture, as well as the One Button Studio.

Access to the collection

A limited Click & Collect service will be offered. Essential ANU staff will be able to access the JB Chifley Library with permission and can collect items.

All other ANU students and staff can contact the ANU Library with details of which items are needed and how they would like to arrange for collection. ANU Library staff do our best to accommodate all requests including mailing material, dropping off to halls of residences and other drop offs. You will be able to pick up from outside the JB Chifley Library on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11am to 1pm.

Items cannot be retrieved from the Print Repository at this time.

Wherever possible, digital works will be acquired, rather than print items. This will reduce points of contact, and still provide access to scholarly material.

The ANU Library has a significant online collection. The ANU Library website provides all ANU students and staff with remote access to a full range of electronic resources, including databases, journal articles, and ebooks.

If you are finding it difficult to go without specific printed material, please speak to our library staff who will work hard to find you a digital alternative.

Support from Library staff

We understand that this is a time of uncertainty, and the ANU Library is committed to supporting the ANU community in any way we can. If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with our friendly librarians and we will do our best to assist you.
