Your study and research in 2020 will be a quality experience. We will support you.

Your Library is committed to supporting you throughout your learning and research. You can access the services you need online and rest assured there's Library staff ready to help you.

What's open, what's closed

From 26 March until 30 April, all libraries are closed except Matheson and Peninsula which remain open (9am - 5pm, Monday - Friday) to support residential students. Access to the two open libraries is restricted to students and staff who need to present their Monash ID. Access to print collections may be limited.


  • Discussion rooms are closed due to social distancing requirements.
  • During the Easter break 10 - 14 April, Matheson and Peninsula will be closed, reopening on 15 April.

We’re practising social distancing to slow the spread of the coronavirus. We’ve made adjustments to allow for the 1.5 metre distance between people, including reducing the number of seats. We have also increased our cleaning services.

Check the health advice and latest information before coming to campus. Please stay home, and consider contacting a medical professional, if you are feeling unwell.
