Library SMS competition


Libraries - your passport to discovery

To celebrate Library & Information Week, 25 - 30 May, the Library invites you to enter a competition using our SMS service.

If you had to choose one book to accompany you on your travels, what book would that be?

SMS the Library - 0428 767 728 (that's 0428 SMS SCU)
and tell us your choice, include your name, and you'll be in the draw to win a great prize.

Entries Close: 28 May 2009

Winners Announced: 29 May 2009

EFTPOS for Printing and Copying

The Library has a new EFTPOS terminal for printing and copying.

Use the touch screen to add value to your ID card. Funds are transferred directly from your debit card to your student ID card. The minimum amount you can transfer is $5.

Unfortunately, you cannot get cash out.

The EFTPOS terminal is easy to spot, beside the autoloader, which can be used if you have cash.
