How to meet the library during Orientation

The first Orientation Week of 2020 starts on Monday! Whether you’ve just arrived from overseas and this is your first time in Australia, or you live right down the road from your campus, we are excited to welcome you here.

The library will be a key part of your success at Deakin. There are lots of opportunities to get to know your campus, as well as the resources and services available, during OWeek!

Meet us in person

Take a 10-minute tour

Each campus library is unique – full of group study spaces, comfy seats and powered desks, computers, printers and scanners, book collections and much more. Throughout OWeek, library staff will be giving tours on demand all day. These casual tours are a great way for you to get to know the spaces in your library, as well as ask any questions you might have!

You can tour your campus library any time between 9.30am­­–4.30pm throughout OWeek, or on Cloud Campus Welcome Weekend (7 & 8 March) between 10am–2pm (11am–2pm at Waurn Ponds).

Join us at Warrnambool Library in the Library Seminar Room (B2.35) on Wednesday 4 March. Two session times are available: 9.30–10.30am and 3.30–4.30pm.
