ERC Library Reopening Soon!

As part of the Student Precinct project, the ERC Library will be opening soon after extensive redevelopment. The refurbished library features the print book collection, study spaces, project rooms, chill-out pods, and much more. 

This is the second building to be completed (the 1888 Building was completed in late 2020) as part of the Student Precinct project, which encompasses seven new or refurbished buildings and reinvigorated outdoor study, social and landscaped spaces. Designed by Lyons and constructed by Kane Constructions, the refurbished ERC Library will feature the print book collection, a variety of informal study seat spaces, bookable project rooms, dedicated study and relaxation areas for Graduate Researchers and computers for students.  

Connecting the library to Country, the Indigenous creek narrative featured throughout the Precinct is represented in the library’s ground floor design via ‘creek-let’ inspired seating. Through their unique shape and colour, these seats represent the tracing of the Bouverie creek watercourse that once traversed the site. Carpet designs throughout the upper levels of the ERC Library reflect local Indigenous culture, native flora and fauna and international themes, while a series of artworks displayed throughout the building draw inspiration from the University’s Archives and Special Collections, celebrating the seldom-seen treasures held in these collections.  

The Scholarly Services team look forward to welcoming you back to the ERC Library soon.
