Intercampus loans

The Intercampus Loans Service arranges the transfer of items between campuses: the Main Library, Law Library, College of Fine Arts Library, UNSW Canberra Academy Library and the Water Reference Library.

Intercampus loans are available to all UNSW Library clients and can be made on items that are on the shelf or already out on loan. Intercampus loans are not available for ULANZ, Alumni or community borrowers.

Items on the shelf cannot be requested for pick up in the same Library location. Items out on loan can be requested for pick up at any Library location.

UNSW Library may cancel your intercampus request(s) if:

  • you have placed a hold on more than one copy of the same item (note: only one copy of the item will be supplied to you)
  • you currently have the item on loan and have requested another copy of the same item
  • you have lost your borrowing privileges due to overdue items or incurred fines
