Abstract

The new library on Notre Dame’s Broome Campus excelled at the recent Master Builders Building Excellence Awards for the Kimberley / Pilbara region, winning an impressive 6 awards.

The team from Norbuilt who constructed the library were ecstatic about their success and paid tribute to the role that Marcus Collins Architects played in the project.

The category for the Best Commercial Building between 1 and 3.5 million dollars was a highlight along with the prestigious Best Commercial Building Award, which the library also won. Other categories that the library received awards for were; Paving, Steelwork, Electrical Fitting and Painting.

Also, as part of the recent Broome North West Expo and Australian Innovation Festival, the Library held an information session for the local business community which aimed at enhancing awareness of what the University Library could offer in the way of business information and resources.

The session included a tour of the new facility, displays of available resources both print and electronic, and a discussion forum on what the business community would like to have available. An explanation of how to access services was also given by Library Technician Jill Skinner.

Executive Director of Notre Dame’s Broome Campus Gavin Greaves said, “As well as our own staff and students, we really want the wider community to benefit from the University’s resources and facilities. This is a fantastic initiative from the library staff, Lyn Quince and Jill Skinner; and they should be congratulated on their proactive approach.”
