Reid Library Refurbishment

Reid Library is being refurbished and is currently closed. Once completed, the Level 1 refurbishment will accommodate a mix of spaces and facilities catering to a range of student study preferences and requirements, with an increase in the number of student study seats. The project is due for completion in Q4, 2024. We hope to re-open the ground floor during Semester 1, 2024 – keep an eye on this webpage for updates. 

The Barry J. Marshall and Beasley Law Libraries will operate from Tuesday 5th March 2024 with swipe access for UWA students and staff. This is a temporary measure to ensure UWA students and staff access to UWA libraries is prioritised while the Reid library is unavailable for part of semester one. Please carry your campus card with you when visiting these libraries.

  • Reid Library collections will be accessible through a request process via OneSearch. Log into OneSearch, request the item and choose your pickup location - Barry J Marshall Library, Beasley Law Library, EDFAA Library (Nedlands Campus) or J Robin Warren Library (QEII Campus). Non-members can email [email protected] to access items. There may be delays and disruptions to this service, due to building works.
