opening hours


Extensive study spaces and a wide range of convenient facilities

The Barry J Marshall Library houses more than 1,000 study spaces, providing students and visitors with a range of options to meet their needs, including collaborative informal study spaces, technology-equipped group work rooms, and silent study spaces for deep focus.

Formerly known as the Science Library, it was renamed in 2015 after Professor Barry J Marshall. Professor Marshall was a co-recipient, with Professor (John) Robin Warren, of the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2005 for their discovery that stomach ulcers were caused by the bacteria Helicobacter pylori.

Both Nobel Laureates now have a library at UWA named after them, the J Robin Warren Library serving health and medical science students and researchers.

The Marshall Library houses the science, engineering, and business print collections, as well as the map collection.

Features include a café, parents room with breastfeeding facilities, a dedicated postgraduate study space, 16 bookable group study spaces and a video wall.
