Get ready!

Uni has started and your assignments are coming!

Great! You’re here!

You’re enrolled, you’ve got your student card, your password and email is set up, your tutorials are organised, you’ve met some new classmates, and you’ve found the Library, the Student Guild Bar and the best coffee on campus…

So, what next?

Now is when you have time – time to plan your weekly schedule, organise your readings, and to learn some important new skills so you can stay ahead with your study all semester. Once time starts to run out, uni can get really hard to manage if you haven’t started right.

Convinced? Good!

Now is not time to waste. Now is the time to accelerate your learning and race ahead with your studies. So – get on it – the clock’s ticking until your first assignment.

Oh – and one last important thing … welcome to QUT!

Book Swap in the Library

Reading is a big part of university study, and as we head into second semester, I’m sure you’re planning on doing a lot of reading over the next few months.  However, reading doesn’t have to be just about study, it can be fun, too!

In celebration of the National Year of Reading, QUT Library is rediscovering the magic of books with its 2012 book swap!

The book swap will start on 23 July and continue through the first two weeks of semester. To get involved just bring in your pre-loved books and exchange them for something you have never read before.  Find a new favourite author or topic, save money and enjoy the read.  The books will be displayed near the Learning and Research desk in the library.

All recreational reading books in fair condition will be accepted. (No old textbooks please!)
