Name: Alex Gibb
Hi, I'm Alex. I work as a Client Services Librarian at CSU Orange, on Wiradjuri Country.
I grew up in Sydney and in 2008 my partner and I moved to Orange, as it is such a great place to raise a family. I love the pace of life in a regional town, and feel so lucky to be able to enjoy everything that the Central West has to offer. It's a great part of the world.
While my kids were young I studied for my library qualification online with Charles Sturt University. It was a busy time, but it was made possible by how easy it is to study from home when you're at CSU. I loved being able to access everything I needed for my degree from my computer at home, all while my kids played in the room with me! In fact, I loved it so much, it was a big part of how I knew I eventually wanted to work at CSU Library.
For years I worked at a local school library and then spent a number of years at the Orange City Library. Every day is different when you work in libraries, because you are responding to the needs of your community.
I'm full-time at CSU Library now and I love the work we do here. I know what it is like to balance work, study, family and whatever else life throws at you. I really enjoy doing everything I can to help students find the information they need for their studies.
If you have any questions about research or using the Library please come and find me in the Orange Library, or contact me via phone or email. I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your study journey.
The Orange Campus Library is located on the outskirts of Orange, a beautiful location rich in agricultural history. The Orange Library is a great place to study & meet up with your friends; here you'll have access to group study pods, discussion spaces and a 24hr Learning Commons. With wireless connection available throughout the Library, Learning Commons, courtyard and gardens, all students have round the clock access to our Library's extensive online resources.
In addition to what's available online the Orange Library has a wide range of resources to help you with your studies. Orange's physical collection focuses mainly on Agribusiness, Agriculture, Accounting and Computer Science, Clinical Science, Dentistry and Oral Health, Pharmacy and Physiotherapy.
