Do you know what has previously occupied your loaned headset?

From semester 1, 2013, the library will no longer loan out headsets.


OH&S concerns have been raised such as:

  • Possible spread of lice and infections, due to the close proximity of the headset to hair, ears, nose and mouth;
  • Possible allergic reaction to cleaning or other chemicals.

We don’t want to hurt you, so the headphones have to go.

As an alternative, Strathfield and Ballarat campus will sell cheap headphones. You could also try the co-op bookstore. Better yet, bring your own with you to campus.
