Hi, I’m Lorraine and I work at Charles Sturt University’s Port Macquarie Campus as a Librarian.
I grew up in the Central Tablelands of NSW before heading to Sydney for University. I then moved to rural Victoria before settling in Port Macquarie where I have lived for almost twenty years. I love living near the beach but also regularly spotting a kangaroo or koala (even from the Port Macquarie Campus Library desk!). I have two kids and plenty of furry/feathery/scaly family members to keep me busy when I’m not at work.
Please drop in and say hello. I’m here to support students discover information for their studies, whether it is advice on using the Library website or how to find a resource for an assessment, I’d love to be able to help you. I like locating and sharing knowledge but I’m always keen to learn new things so pop in and tell me about your studies (or animals!).
Charles Sturt’s newest Campus is a few kilometres from the town centre of Port Macquarie, a growing cultural and educational centre on the Mid North Coast of NSW and famous for its beautiful beaches.
The three-level Campus includes a Student Learning Commons and Library which is accessible 24 hours, 7 days a week. Computer and printing facilities, group study rooms, quiet nooks, a parenting room and a student kitchen are all available here, as well as the library collection. Adjacent to the Learning Commons is the Indigenous Student Centre, Ngarralbaa, meaning place of learning and knowledge.
A range of courses are taught at the Port Macquarie Campus, including Accounting, Criminal Justice, Paramedics, Nursing, Applied Science, Education, Medical Radiation Science, Psychology and Social Work. Our Library caters for everyone, including a number of students studying by Distance Education. Please come and see us if you need assistance with any information gathering for your studies.
