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 project.

The library will temporarily close for refurbishment from Friday, 10 November, 2017. From Monday, 13 November, 2017, limited library services will be available in the clinical sciences corridor, tutorial room F (located on level 2 of Westmead Hospital, near the Westmead Clinical School). The library is expected to re-open in April 2018.

The new Westmead Hospital Library has been designed in consultation with Western Sydney Local Health District and University of Sydney staff and students. It will be upgraded to a highly engaging teaching and learning environment, and will offer technology-enabled individual and group study spaces, clinical examination rooms and bookable meeting rooms.

While the library is closed, students and staff participating in education, training and research activities are encouraged to use level 1 of the Westmead Education and Conference Centre (WECC). Level 1 of the WECC has recently been upgraded by the University of Sydney, in partnership with Western Sydney Local Health District, offering contemporary, purpose-built teaching and learning spaces.

The Westmead Hospital Library refurbishment project is the third major upgrade of shared education, training and research spaces for Westmead Hospital. The transformation of education, training and research at Westmead responds to our growing multidisciplinary environment, and aligns with our vision of a being a global health precinct.
