Our history

Our history

Macquarie University has always had one central Library servicing the whole campus. The first Library (building C7A now known as 18 Wally's Walk) opened in 1967 and delivered best-practice traditional Library services to the university for over 40 years. The existing Library at 16 Macquarie Walk opened in 2011, providing a sustainable 21st century learning and research environment that facilitates interactions between people and knowledge.
