Does this picture bring back memories for you? Those were the days before Wikipedia, when we had CD-ROM workstations instead of online databases, and VHS tapes instead of DVDs, email workstations because, you know having email on your phone – what on a phone! – was just a twinkle in someone’s eye. Maybe you have earlier memories & photos.
We’d love to hear your memories of the Main and Law libraries over the years. As part of Bond University’s 25th anniversary celebrations the Main Library will be putting up a reflection wall for visitors and alumni to pin up their library memories and photos. Even if you can’t attend the Bond Homecoming you can still be part of the celebrations by sharing your photo and stories online.
On Bond Homecoming Community Day, Friday 16th May, the Main Library will be hosting an open day (9am-3pm) so you can visit us for some Bond nostalgia including:
