Visiting Wammarra on Wednesday from 1:30pm to 3:00pm

I grew up on Wiradjuri Country in a small town called Mandurama between Bathurst and Cowra in the central west of NSW

My first place of tertiary study and work as a teenager was Charles Sturt University, where I studied education and posted letters to alumni members who had finished their degree and moved on to bright new things. After many years living in different places and working in different industries I have come full circle back to Charles Sturt – the university where I first studied and worked, met my future husband, and now study and work again!

I started working in the library here over 10 years ago, which opened the world of information literacy and technology up to me. The power these new insights offered me felt like sorcery of the best kind, and the enjoyment I get from sharing these insights with patrons in my library is palpable. Showing people how they can investigate topics, research theories, evaluate information and achieve great marks is one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had, and knowing I’m changing the future of the next generation, in a small way, is a great feeling. 

Being impactful, inclusive, inspiring and insightful are the core values of my workplace, and I strive to achieve these values in the Charles Sturt Library every day - feel free to drop in and see me or contact me via email if you need help!

Bathurst Campus

Bathurst campus learning commons

Bathurst Campus Library is situated at the centre of the campus in building 1412, fronting onto gorgeous lawns and large shady trees. The Campus has a focus on Exercise and Sports Science, Education, Business Studies, Journalism and Health Sciences and the Library is home to a wide range of resources to support these study areas.

The Learning Commons is a fantastic place to study at whatever time suits you. Wireless connectivity means you can bring your own laptop to use, or borrow one from the front desk. There is a wide range of computing, printing, and assistive technology resources available, as well as friendly library staff to point you in the right direction.

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.Acknowledgement of Country
