Historical information

The Collingwood Campus library of NMIT was redeveloped in 2007 and renamed the Bill Freeman Library and Student Centre. The new centre was designed to meet changes in thelibrary to a more student-focused service. It provides spaces for a variety of learning needs and styles. The library was named after Bill Freeman, a long-standing institute council member of Collingwood College of TAFE and later NMIT, serving as NMIT Council President 2002-2006. He retired from the Council in 2007.


As the first 'student centre' the Bill Freeman Library and Student Centre was a design model for the development of Fairfield, Heidelberg and Epping campus libraries.
