We're very proud that Caulfield Library won the 2019 Library Design Award (academic category)!
The judges described it as "...visually and physically connected with the campus through its glass entrance and western facade with new accessible ground level access for library users. It is a light, safe and secure focal point for campus users, day and night." #wowcaulfield
