Finding books outside the UoM libraries

The Bonus catalogue enables you to see if the item you need is held at another participating library (ie, where the University of Melbourne copy is unavailable, or there is no copy in our collection). Follow the prompts to request an item via Bonus.

Trove is an Australia-wide catalogue, that lists the holdings of University, public, government and specialist libraries. Some Trove resources are available on-line, while others are in hard-copy. If an item you need is held at a Victorian tertiary library, you may be able to borrow it using a CAVAL card (which is free to obtain - ask at the Loans desk).
