Library Node at the Law Chambers
The Library Node is a room containing a small collection of textbooks from the Monash University Library, which have been set for postgraduate units run at the Law Chambers. Books are available for three hour loan.
Postgraduate law students can also place 'Requests' for books held at Library branches (via Search) to be sent to the Node for pick up, borrowing, and returning.
The Node is not a staffed branch of the Monash University Library. It has been established for the convenience of Law postgraduate students, so please help to keep it tidy and remember to borrow the books when you remove them from the Library Node.
For more information about the Library Node, go to The Library Node webpage.
