Library Services for Year 11/12 Students: Home

This guide provides information for access to the University Library by year 11 and 12 school students.


The University of Adelaide Library provides access to resources to support teaching, learning and research at a tertiary (university) level.

Year 11 & 12 students

During years 11 and 12 many students discover that they need access to a level of material that school libraries and public libraries don't always hold. Although members of the public can generally use the University of Adelaide Library, there are added benefits for students whose schools sign up for the Library's Year 11 &12 Program.

Schools can book to bring in a group of students to the Barr Smith Library on the North Terrace Campus for an orientation session on searching for Library resources and a tour of the Library. There is the option to apply for borrowing cards for students and this membership is free for year 11 & 12 students.

Participating Year 11 and 12 students will be provided with membership to borrow print books. Borrowing can only be organised through the school.

For more information see Borrowing by yr 11/12s in this guide. 

Other year levels

Schools can book to bring  year 10 students for an information session and a  tour of the Barr Smith Library - however borrowing will not be possible.

There is a separate scheme for University Senior College and University of Adelaide College students.
