At the Library we’re about so much more than books! Complete your PhD with us and help us to understand the value of our library. Applications close 28 September 2015

QUT Library is currently looking for applicants for a three year PhD scholarship. We’ve teamed up with QUT Business School (Australia’s first business school with triple international accreditation!) to offer this awesome opportunity to investigate the value of QUT Library. We’re not only interested in answering, “What is the value of QUT Library?” but also discovering the myriad of ways that libraries contribute to achieving university-wide goals. Throughout your study, you’ll be working closely with QUT Library senior staff.

The closing date for applications is 28 September 2015. For more details and eligibility requirements, please see the information on our website.

New and improved Library website!

A new and improved QUT Library website was launched on Sunday June 28.

What’s so new, you ask?

Look and Feel

The re-developed Library website comes with a new look and feel. It has been developed based on user feedback and is consistent with other QUT sites such as QUT Virtual and the Student Portal.

You should feel right at home on the new Library website - it looks the same as many other QUT sites you're already familiar with!

Content Structure and Navigation

The library website content is easy to find, clearly separated into relevance for specific user groups: Students, Researchers and Community. Information, resources and services for teaching staff can now be found on the new Digital Workplace.

This change created a new navigation structure: Instead of having one homepage, the new site has several landing pages of equal weight and importance. These are:

  • Search and borrow: Find resources and information about how to access them
  • Students: Information, resources and services for students
  • Researchers: Information, resources and services for researchers
  • Community: Library services available to alumni and non-QUT users

There are now several landing pages instead of a home page. This should make it easier for everyone to find the information they need on the Library site quickly and easily.

Access to Your Services

Need to book a room? Place a hold on a resource? Sign up for a workshop? You can do all this and more from one easy menu.

Several services such as ‘My loans and holds’, ‘My room-bookings’ and ‘My workshops’ are user-specific and require a login. These are now grouped in one login menu accessible from every page of the site, rather than being spread out over different pages.

Help and opening hours can be accessed throughout the site using the links in the header.
