Spanning three floors, Giblin Eunson Library is one of the largest libraries on Parkville campus, providing individual and group study spaces including bookable project rooms, a recording pod, and a separate graduate student space for University of Melbourne students. The Giblin Eunson Library opened on 25 July 2011 and is named after Professor Lyndurst Falkiner Giblin (1872-1951) and Warwick Eunson (1907-1983).
Professor Lyndhurst F. Giblin
Commerce was established at the University of Melbourne in 1924, with Douglas Berry Copland, formerly the Professor of Commerce in Tasmania, appointed as Chair. There followed the Ritchie Chair of Economics, a research chair established in 1927 through the generosity of R. W. Ritchie of Penshurst, in memory of his son Captain W. B. Ritchie, killed in World War I. The inaugural incumbent of this chair in 1930 was Professor Lyndhurst Falkiner Giblin.
Warwick Eunson was the Principal of the Melbourne Teachers’ College from 1962 to 1972 and a visionary librarian. He trained at the Melbourne Teachers’ College 1928-29 and taught in primary and secondary schools, encouraging his students to research by creating and facilitating access to a collection of organized resources including books, pamphlets and newspaper cuttings. In recognition of his work, the Department sent him to Sydney where he trained as a librarian under John Metcalfe.
