Welcome to the GSV

GSV's COVID Opening Plan

Printer-Friendly View

We are re-opening  the Research Centre from 30th November, Tuesday-to-Friday and some Saturdays. 

You will need to check in using the Service Victoria QR code check-in app and to show proof of valid double vaccination, either with a digital certificate linked to the app or a printed copy of your vaccination certificate with photo identification.

If you don't have a smartphone, a check-in kiosk will be available in the Library but please show a printed copy of your vaccination certificate and some photo id. to the Library Research Assistant who will be on hand to assist you. For members with a medical exemption, the GSV would like to assist you with your research remotely. Please use our Quick Look-up Service.

In line with government regulations, masks will be required when safe social distancing of 1.5 metres cannot be attained. This is most likely to occur when Research Assistants or staff are helping members face to face. So please bring a mask.
