The item you want is not at SCU

For items not at Southern Cross University, the Library can request a loan from another library (inter-library loan) on your behalf.  This service is available for Postgraduate students, staff members, and researchers affiliated with the University.

How to use the inter-library loan service

  1. When searching the library collections, click on Sign in in the top right of the screen and follow the prompts.
  2. Search for the item you want.
  3. If the item is not held at SCU libraries click on the Request a non-SCU item link (tab at top of screen).
  4. Select the citation type (Book or Article) and fill in details on the form that appears. For RUSH or EXPRESS (pay) requests, please phone Document Supply on (02) 6626 9159.
  5. Click on Send request.

Alumni members can use the service but may only receive documents from suppliers within Australia. Additional fees apply.
