The Library welcomes the use of its spaces to promote collaboration and the pursuit of knowledge, and to contribute to Tasmania’s cultural, social, and economic development consistent with the University’s mission and goals.

The Library has several spaces that can cater to a variety of student, academic and University stakeholder-partnered community activities and events.

Overarching principles:

  • Our current University students and staff have priority use of the Library.
  • Library, Cultural Collections, Riawunna, UConnect, Student Life and Enrichment staff (Primary Stakeholders) have priority use of the Library spaces for activities attached to their area of focus e.g., information and enquiries, digital and research skills development, academic skills, peer learning, cultural activities, object-based learning, and schools’ engagement programs particularly during semesters.
  • For University and community events and activities to take place in Library spaces:
    • University staff and community organisers must consult and collaborate with one of the Library’s Primary Stakeholders.
    • The event or activity must have a strong connection to or showcase learning, teaching and research.
    • The event or activity must be of strategic importance to the University and
    • The event’s parameters must recognise the functional limits of the Library’s spaces (for example, the significant limits to on-site provision of food and drink).

Please contact Library and Cultural Collections to discuss holding an event or activity in a Library space.
