Using your Library

Using the Panizzi Room for special events

Connecting people with content is the primary goal of the UOW Library. As the primary knowledge resources centre on campus, the Library also encourages the transmission and expression of ideas essential to an informed and inspired clientele. The opening up of the Panizzi Room supports this vision; providing a venue to facilitate access to ideas representing points of view across a variety of subjects.

The Panizzi Room can be booked by UOW staff for strategic events, such as:

  • Art exhibitions
  • Research presentations
  • Seminars
  • Book launches
  • Collaborative promotions
  • Archive displays
  • Commemorative events
