The staff at Caboolture library hope all the students and staff at Caboolture campus (and beyond!) have a great Christmas and New Year. We look forward to seeing you all in 2012, after a well deserved break!

The library will be closing at 3pm on Friday the 23rd of December.  As outlined in a previous blog post, we will then remain closed over the Christmas/New Year period and re-open on Tuesday the 3rd of January.

If you’re worried that you will be bored over the holidays, QUT Library can help.  We have an extensive range of popular fiction and DVDs for all your holiday entertainment needs.  If the book or DVD you want is at another campus, simply place a hold and it will be at Caboolture for you to pick up within a couple of days.

Once again, enjoy your break and we’ll see you in the New Year!

Do you know about QUT TV?

Are you studying over the summer semester? Tired and need to watch that Australian Open quarter final match, but stuck on campus? Well give yourself a hard-earned break and watch the televised match through your computer!

Access QUT TV at

QUT TV offers access to over 30 new channels so you can keep up to date with news and current affairs, sport, reruns and the latest episodes of your favourite reality TV shows (when you need your Snooki fix).

All the usual channels are on offer as well as the full range of digital channels including ABC News 24, Seven Mate, Gem and Eleven, as well as a selection of international channels including Al Jazeera, Russia Today and NHK World TV. Selected Foxtel channels are also available.

QUT TV is accessible from every wired computer on campus and will not affect your student download quota.


99 of the best in home grown Indigenous literature

Acclaimed Indigenous author and social commentator Dr Anita Heiss has put together a list of 99 of her favourite Indigenous authored books.

Inspired by the BBC’s Book Challenge, Heiss wondered what an Indigenous list might look like and how many books most Australians would have read in terms of home grown Indigenous literature. While Heiss herself claims it is by no means a definitive list, she has simply recommended her “must reads”, and limiting the list to one book per author.

A mix of genres including fiction, non-fiction, poetry, children’s, plays and anthologies, the list includes:

Check out the full list on Anita Heiss’s blog.

Additionally, check out Black Words for works of literature by over 5000 published Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in Australia.
