Library Lovers’ Day – 5 ways to love Deakin Library

At Deakin University, our libraries aren’t just places filled with books – they are hubs of resources, technology, and support designed to make your time at Deakin both successful and enjoyable. Here are five ways you can make the most out of Deakin Library and start loving every minute. 

  1. Get books instantly with the Deakin Borrow App

Gone are the days of waiting in line to check out books. With the Deakin Borrow app, your phone becomes your library card, allowing you to check out books directly from your device. Using the app, you can scan and check out library items right from the shelf, manage or renew your loans, and view the status of your requests. 

  1. Explore our four campus libraries

Each Deakin campus boasts its own library that features an extensive collection of books, archives and rooms you can book for group study or for yourself. Our campuses also feature reset rooms that offer a safe, calm and soothing environment to reset your day. No matter the library you are at, you’ll find a space where you can learn, research and study in the environment that suits you! 

  1. Get technical help with Student TechAssist – Library

Launching on 19 February, our Student TechAssist service is here to troubleshoot your tech setup. Offering help with issues like connecting to wi-fi and logging into your Deakin account, our student team will be available for walk-up support at the library from 10am–3pm, Monday to Friday, until Week 4 of the trimester. 

  1. Simplify your study with our Reading List tool

Preparing for Trimester 1 has never been easier, thanks to our Reading List tool. This handy feature allows you to find all your required readings for a subject in one place. No need for endless searching –just quick, easy access to the materials you need for your courses, helping you stay organised! 

  1. Connect with LSAs and librarians who are here to help!

Our Library Service Advisors (LSAs) and Scholarly Librarians are the heart of Deakin Library. They’re passionate about helping you find the information you need and ensuring you have the best possible experience in the library. Whether you’re navigating research for an assignment or looking for specific study materials, they’re ready to answer your questions.
