Murdoch research aims for UN sustainability goals

The Library is celebrating Open Access Week, the international event promoting Open Access of scholarly publishing, by featuring a snapshot of Murdoch research that aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG) that call for global action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all.

Open Access week highlights the benefits of Open Access publication to areas such as research visibility, global collaboration, and contribution to sustainable development and public health.

This collection represents all 17 UNSD Goals, demonstrating a clear reflection of the University’s core values - equity and social justice, sustainability, global responsibility and innovation and entrepreneurship.

Library Rovers

Next time you’re at Geoffrey Bolton Library, keep an eye out for our Library Rovers (hint: they’ll be wearing bright red polos). Ask them anything, from how to search for books and online resources to where the toilets are! They’ll be wondering through the Library from 10am weekdays on all levels.
