J. Robin Warren Library

State-of-the-art library for students

The J. Robin Warren Library is a vibrant learning space for students, graduates and the community. Formerly known as the UWA Medical and Dental Library, it was renamed in honour of Emeritus Professor John Robin Warren, AC, in 2017. Along with Professor Barry Marshall, J. Robin Warren was awarded a Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 2005 for the duo’s discovery that Helicobacter pylori is the main cause of peptic or stomach ulcers and gastric cancer.

Located at UWA’s Health Campus, the recently completed $7 million refurbishment transformed the traditional space into an innovative, technology-rich facility with a greater emphasis on collaborative study and expanded e-learning capability to meet the changing work styles of today.

The library features group learning areas, study booths, a learning suite, training room, alumni lounge and a student lounge with kitchen facilities. Student input was integral to the library’s new design, and following its opening, positive feedback was received. Users commented on the impressive transformation, describing the library as light and airy, chic, modern, clean, stylish and a conducive environment for studying with lots of private spaces, better facilities and seats facing windows.
