Borrowing and requesting

Borrowing of print library items has been suspended. 

Due dates for already borrowed items will be extended. We will let you know when you can return your library items.

Recall of items on loan has been suspended.

The Interlibrary Loan service will now be limited to the delivery of electronic articles only and print books will not be processed. As other libraries around Australia and worldwide are also experiencing disruptions to their services, we ask for your patience when waiting for these requests to be supplied.
