Visiting Winan Gidyal during study sessions
Hi, I’m Karen. I grew up on a property in south-east Riverina region of New South Wales. My childhood was great and loved growing up with space around me. I would spend time helping with farm chores, driving tractor and motorbikes, tending to animals and always looked forward to our annual holiday, which was usually at the beach.
On finishing school, I moved to Sydney (a very daunting move) to complete my library studies. Once completed, I moved to Wagga Wagga where I worked as a cataloguer for the Riverina Regional Library, before I joined CSU Library. In 2000, transferred to the Albury-Wodonga Campus Library, when a position became vacant and have not left. Since then, I have married and have 2 beautiful boys and love the role I play in their lives.
I work in the Client Services team at Albury-Wodonga Campus Library. One of the things I love most about my job, is being able to help students and staff to be able to locate the information that they are after and make full use of the services available to them. Please feel free to drop in and see me or give me a call – I’m here to help you.
The Albury-Wodonga Campus is set amid bushland and wetlands not far from the main township of Albury.
The Campus has an Indigenous Student Centre, Winan Gidyal, which means learning or knowledge. Winan Gidyal maintains strong links with the local Aboriginal community and Elders.
At Albury-Wodonga we teach and do research in Environmental Sciences, so the campus and its buildings are environmentally designed. We also teach Allied Health, Business, Education, Information Technology, and Nursing.
The Library is adjacent to the Henry Nowik Learning Commons, which is a central building on the campus. The Learning Commons and library are accessible 24-hours, 7 days a week. Here you can access, research and teaching spaces, group study rooms, a parenting room and kitchenette, as well as the library collection and other facilities.
You are welcome to come see us in the Library for any assistance with the information you need for your studies.
Charles Sturt University acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands on which its campuses are located, paying respect to Elders, both past and present, and extend that respect to all First Nations Peoples.
