Textbook Protection


  • Valuable personal property should be photographed, marked and recorded.
  • You can use a personal code e.g. Drivers Licence, or your initials with your date of birth and the letter or letters for the state we live in. For example, John Smith DOB 23/3/62 is JS230362NSW.
  • Lost textbooks are often handed in at Security, therefore identification is important. 



  • Either mark or tag the USB with name or student number.
  • Always remember to retrieve the USB.
  • Found USBs are sometimes handed in to Security.
  • USBs found in the Library are sent to the Security Office, retained for six weeks, then destroyed.
