Create a special collections teaching space in the Fryer Library
We are more than half way to our goal of $210,000 to build an exciting new teaching space in the Fryer Library at the University’s St Lucia campus.
The space, for researchers and the community, will provide greater access to the treasures held in our special collections through classes, displays and events. It will help us use more primary source material in our teaching and learning.
The room and outdoor area will highlight the Fryer’s rich literary, historical and architectural collections that include the manuscripts of David Malouf, Peter Carey, Oodgeroo Noonuccal, rare books, photographs and architectural plans.
The architects Kim and Monique Baber from Baber Studio have created a thoughtful and attractive design for the space that blends the two collecting strengths of the Fryer Library — architecture and literature.
Help us make this teaching space a reality
