Experience your Library

We're making improvements online and on-campus

From Monday 20 August you can book study spaces online through our new booking system. This easy-to-use system allows you to select the required space and time, and book using your USQ login details. When your booking is complete, you will receive a confirmation email. The new online booking system makes it much easier for you to book rooms.

Your new online Library experience launched on the 9th of July. Need some help navigating your new Search? Many things are much the same but there may be a few surprises.

To make your journey as smooth as possible, we have created a help guide. Check out some of the changes below, and please tell us what you think!

The newly refurbished Springfield Library space is now open! More details below. 

Your new online Library launched on July 9, 2018. We are aware of some system issues and are hard at work fixing them. Thank you for your continued patience as we iron out the wrinkles.

What has changed?

  • You can now book study rooms online
