Library

Borrowing from our libraries

As a member of the Library, you can borrow items from our collections at any of our libraries. Renew your items online using My Library. All Murdoch students and staff can use BONUS+ to request books we don't have.


Use your staff, student or library card to borrow from the Library. We have self check facilities located on North Wing Level 3 of the Geoffrey Bolton Library and in the Veterinary Library, or take your items and card to the help desk.

Return your loans to any of our libraries, regardless of where you borrowed them from. High Demand collection loans must be returned to the library they were borrowed from.

Renewing your loans

Renew online using My Library or at the self check machines in the Library. 

MY LIBRARY

Requests

You can request items which are already on loan or are available at another Murdoch campus library. Use Library Search or the Catalogue. We will email you when the item is ready for collection at your preferred pickup location.

Similarly, items you have borrowed may be requested by someone else. You will be notified via email and have 7 days to return the item.

Each Librarian is a specialist in a specific field and we may be able to help you out in your research.

Renew items you have on loan and keep track of what you have borrowed using My Library.
