Canberra deluge causes extensive flood damage to books in ANU’s Chifley Library

(26 February 2018)  The Australian National University is still counting the cost of Sunday’s storm, listing damage to rare books, delays to the Union Court redevelopment and the writing off of up to 11 excavators as among major issues caused by the deluge.

About 22,000 students and 4,500 staff were asked to stay away from the university on Monday as it closed for the first time in more than a decade.
