Transforming libraries


For a new generation of scholars

Monash University is creating engaging, compelling and stimulating libraries that will be a pleasure to use for learning and research. We're redeveloping the Sir Louis Matheson and Caulfield Libraries to cater for the changing needs of today's students.

For many staff and students the Library is the heart of the University. During semester over 16,000 people a day use these two libraries to engage in scholarly pursuits. The refurbishments will make them much more welcoming and effective.
