I joined a tour of my university's library today.
It was a guide on how to use the library effectively.

I found that I have to pay to print things
although it was free at universities in Japan and even at the school attached to my university here. haha
University is always expensive.

I went to see Blake Library in the city.
It took around 5 minutes from the university.
There is one more called Kuring-gai Library in North Sydney.
The facility in the city was very impressive since they have heaps of books,
as well as study rooms for studying quitly, praciting presentations, and computers to use.
Now I understand why a lot of people like this place.

I learned how to use the library catalog
but since there were a lot of functions, I was not quite sure.
The main difference between the library here and Japanese unversity libraries is
that we can talk with librarians online if we encounter any problems.
I don't know if I can use the system though.

I like the place and since the university requires me to read heaps of books for self-study,
I will spend a lot of time there.

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.
1. overhaul (in a newspaper)
= to examine every part of a machine, system, etc. and make any necessary changes or repairs
2. rubble (on TV)
= broken stones or bricks from a building or wall that has been destroyed or damaged
3. partygoer (in a newspaper)
= a person who enjoys going to parties or who is a guest at a particular party
