COVID-19: Library Resources

Due to current events, we have reduced our on-campus library opening times and services. If you haven’t already, connect with ACAP Library staff and services online here.

Library staff are available online to support you and provide assistance finding and using online resources such as, ebooks, journal articles and streaming video services.

Online support

To support the transition to online services, the library has extended the hours of the live LibChat service for library support and assistance. LibChat is now staffed Monday to Sunday 8.30am to 8.00pm AEDT. You can access LibChat in the footer of the library website.

Research support sessions

Students can access one-on-one research support sessions via Zoom with ACAP Librarians. A session booking form is available here.

Print book services

Due to staff working from home and limited access to campus print collections, many print book services are not available at this time. These include postal lending, hold requests and intercampus book delivery. We appreciate this will impact some students more than others. Library staff are working with educators to ensure all set readings are available electronically. Contact us if this is not your specific case and we can assist by working with you to find a digital version of the resource or a relevant alternative.

All current loans have been extended for a period of one month and a general fines amnesty will apply. Please check the library website for updates on these changes.

We are here to help

We want to reassure you that the library staff are still accessible and available to support you throughout your studies. If you have any concerns or queries, please contact us via LibChat.

Please keep an eye on our COVID-19, Online Campus and library webpages for regular updates.

Campus Libraries

Please check this link for any changes to opening hours before coming to a campus library:

If the campus library is open please consider your need to come in. Staff will observe social distancing and all library visitors must do so to ensure their own health and to avoid putting others at risk. Please maintain the recommended social distancing space of 1.5m when interacting with a library staff member or other students. You will see new signage on some library computers and facilities which enables the implementation of social distancing. Not all library computers will be accessible due to social distancing.
