Murdoch University Library is home to an extensive collection of books and ebooks, journals and ejournals, streaming media, dissertations, theses, past exam papers, conference proceedings, government publications and more. The Library collection has been developed since the foundation of Murdoch University in 1974. The primary purpose of the collection is to support and enhance the scholarly activities of students and staff at the University.
We are also proud to house our Special Collections which are home to thousands of culturally significant, unique and hard-to-find items.
The collection commenced at the request of the inaugural University Librarian George Buick to document the growing issue of Aboriginal Land Rights, Women’s Rights and Gay Rights. These issues became a focus of the collection, which commenced in 1975 and was initially called The Alternative and Contemporary Documents Collection (ACDC). The current Special Collections are a continuation of this initiative. The Collections held by the Geoffrey Bolton Library are a unique and precious resource.
