Borrowing: Community Borrowers

Community Borrowers

The University Library welcomes any member of the community to visit any of our six libraries.  

Members of the community can apply for membership to borrow at libraries in Broome, Fremantle and Sydney.  Membership costs $40 per annum and is offered at all locations.  See below for information on services available and how to apply.

Library Services Available

All of the University libraries hold collections of print books and periodicals, including academic journals, magazines, and newspapers.  

The majority of the print collections are available to Community Borrowers for loan, with the exception of certain resources. These exceptions include items which can only be accessed while in the libraries (e.g reference materials and journals), short term loan items, and items that are in high demand from students.


The non-loaning resources include:

  •     Reference items
  •     Serials (journals, magazines, newspapers)
  •     Rare and special collections
  •     Reserve Collections
     
Due to licences and other restrictions, the University Library is unable to provide Community Borrowers with access to PCs, eResources, the wider internet, or print/copy facilities.
