Community Membership

Community member on laptop in the library

Membership at the University Library provides access to a first-class research collection.

Community borrower membership is available to all South Australian residents.

For further information about community borrowing, please contact Ask Library.

While the library is open to the general community to come in and browse, by signing up for community membership you will get to borrow books and other items from the library's extensive collections. Community membership costs $121 per year, and to join as a community member you must be a resident of South Australia

Some electronic resources are restricted for use by staff and students.
