If you are unable to visit the Library in person, please call to make alternate arrangements.
Most Alumni members of the Library choose to transfer their student membership to an alumni membership on completion of their studies. Just ask Library staff at the Circulation Desk for assistance.
The annual fee for Alumni is $100 (a 50% discount on the usual community borrowing rate). This can be paid in cash, credit card or by EFTPOS.
Alumni members can borrow 5 items for 2 weeks however items in Closed Reserve and Shorts Loans are available for use within the Library only as these are works that are in heavy demand by students for course work.
Alumni membership and borrowing privileges are conditional upon compliance with the External Lending Policy and Library Rules documents, which are available from the following links:
