Borrowing print copies of books within Australia

Borrowing from the University of Melbourne physical collections.

  • If you live in Melbourne you can visit the campus and borrow from the University of Melbourne Library.  You will need to ask your Graduate Online Support Consultant to organise a borrowing card for you. We are unable to mail out books.


  • A CAVAL card will allow you to browse the collections and borrow from other universities within Victoria. Ask your Graduate Online Support Consultant to organise a borrowing card for you.


  • Live interstate? Find copies of books held in Australian libraries using TROVE. Use the ULANZ borrowing scheme to borrow in person from any other participating Australian and New Zealand University libraries. Check the institutional requirements for borrowing and contact your Graduate Online Support Consultant if you need assistance with meeting the identification requirements.
