University of Wollongong Library
University of Wollongong Library is a meeting place for all members of the University. Staff, students and community members make use of the wide range of services and resources. Spaces within the Library have been designed to not only cater for different learning styles and preferences but to be attractive and inspirational places. This is enhanced through the display of over 180 paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture and other art forms.
The artwork in the University of Wollongong Library features substantial groupings of works by Guy Warren, Ian Gentle and Bert Flugelman. These three major Australian artists have long, close and warm associations with the University and the Illawarra region. Other works represent a range of established and emerging Australian artists and incorporate painting, printmaking, photographs, textiles and sculptures. The large number of lithographs, linocuts, etchings, woodcuts and screenprints reflect one of the specialisations of the UOW Art Collection.
Many of the works have been donated to the University by the artists or major Australian art collectors.
Our Library Panizzi Room also hosts a number of specialised exhibitions throughout each year which seek to support the social, cultural and intellectual life of the University of Wollongong by promoting specific Library collections and resources, and contribute to community engagement by attracting new visitors into the Library space. The exhibitions have included collaboration with people both within and outside of the UOW community, and have included opportunities to hear expert topic presentations as well as hands on workshops.
