Westmead Hospital Library refurbishment update

Construction of the clinical examination rooms in the new library

The Westmead Hospital Library refurbishment is progressing, with the framework for internal walls going up this week. 

All remnants of the 40-year-old carpet, ceiling tiles and lighting have been removed, and a substantial amount of old furniture and shelving has gone to charities in need. 

The library refurbishment is expected to be completed at the end of May 2018.  

Westmead Hospital Library is being upgraded by the University of Sydney, in partnership with Western Sydney Local Health District, as part of the Westmead Redevelopment. 

The fresh new space will be an engaging learning and teaching environment, offering technology-enabled individual and group study spaces, purpose-built rooms for student and medical staff examinations and bookable meeting rooms.

While the library is temporarily closed for refurbishment, library staff can be found in tutorial room F, in the clinical sciences corridor on level two of Westmead Hospital. 

A roaming librarian service is also available, where a librarian will come to you! Roaming librarians can come to an in-service, arrange a training session tailored to your health specialty, provide assistance with Endnote consult and support your research with literature reviews and more. 

You can book a librarian by calling (02) 8890 6266 or emailing WSLHD WestmeadLibrary@health.nsw.gov.au.
