Getting to know your library will help make studying at university much easier

At Griffith, our libraries are much more than just books on the shelves. We also offer workshops and study tips to help you get the most out of your university experience.

We also provide computers for study and laptops you can borrow, or you can bring your device and connect to Griffith wi-fi.

Welcome to the Library

We all know starting Uni can be a bit scary…at first. So, where do you start? You’ve got your timetable, you’ve checked out myGriffith and found your courses in Learning@Griffith. But what about the Library? Griffith Library is more than just shelves of books. It’s the heart of the Uni.
