Open Access Publications

Have you discovered the growing collection of Bond University Open Access Publications available on the Library’s Collections platform? 

The Publications collection contains a wide variety of newsletters and magazines that bring the past alive with articles and photos of staff and students together with reports of their activities, social and sporting events, academic successes and innovations.   

The minutiae of University life can be explored through various publications over different periods:

  • Achievement¬†which ran from the¬†early¬†days of Bond University‚Äôs construction¬†in¬†1987¬†to¬†the end of 1991 when the first Student Council was formed.¬†
  • The Arch¬†(1992-1993) was¬†a¬†short-lived¬†magazine,¬†but provides¬†a spotlight on the most newsworthy events of the time such as the establishment of a campus mediation service and the first Human-Computer Communications centre (HCCC) specialising in ‚Äėhuman-computer interaction and use interface technology‚Äô (p. 1 Vol 1. No.2).¬†
  • Bond Observer, produced by the Bond Public Relations Office, appeared in 1994 and¬†closed¬†with a Christmas edition in 2000.¬† This publication covered many academic accolades and student activities as well as highlighting Bond‚Äôs growth and successes through these years.¬†¬†You may even recognise a current professor or two among the numerous¬†photos scattered throughout each issue.
  • The colourful¬†Focus Magazine¬†ran from 2001 to 2004 covering another period of rapid change and growth at Bond when ‚ÄėThink Bond‚Äô was the marketing slogan.¬†¬†¬†The¬†last¬†edition in July¬†2004¬†contains¬†milestone¬†articles¬†celebrating ‚ÄėThe first 15 years‚Äô of the University¬†and¬†the generous donation of $1¬†million¬†towards the cost of¬†constructing the new Medical School building.¬†¬†¬†
