PAM (Please Assist Me) ? University Library SMS Service

Library users are able to contact Library staff without leaving their study space with the PAM (Please Assist Me) SMS Service.

The PAM (Please Assist Me) SMS service is one of many ways for you to engage with us when you are studying in the UWA libraries. We understand that sometimes you won’t want to leave your belongings unattended, you might want to report an issue anonymously, or perhaps it’s not that urgent and you want to keep working.

Please remember...

  • Do not use PAM for emergencies. Call Security on 6488 2222 or come to the Information Desk in the Library.
  • Do not send photos of other students (but its ok to send photos of facilities or equipment).
  • Do not send complex enquiries. Due to the nature of SMS, it will be difficult for us to respond well to complex issues. Come to the Information Desk or call us.
  • Please don’t spam us.
