How do I lodge a request?

Before lodging a request for document delivery check to see if the item is held in the University of Notre Dame Library.

For books:

  • Search FiNDit
  • Check to see if it is available via a local reciprocal borrowing scheme (you may be able to get the item quicker this way)
  • Consider whether this would be a useful resource for other staff and students and make a recommendation for the Library to purchase the item using the Recommend a Purchase form.

For theses:

  • Search FiNDit
  • Search the research repository of the author's home institution  

For journal articles:

  • Search FiNDit
  • Search for the journal by title (under the eJournals tab on our homepage)
  • Search Google Scholar

If you still cannot access the required item you can request use of the library's document delivery and interlibrary loan service. Read more below.

Document Delivery & Interlibrary Loan

Eligible staff and students can request access to resources that the Notre Dame Library doesn't have in order to support their teaching, learning, and research.

Document Delivery:

Scanned copies of journal articles, book chapters, conference proceedings and more. Submit a request and we will see if we can source it.

Interlibrary Loan:

Loans of items (typically books) from other Australian libraries.

The following students and staff are eligible for this service:

  • Current academic staff members
  • PhD students
  • MD students
  • Masters (Research) students
  • Honours students
  • Remote students (Check eligibility at the link below)
  • Students with a Learning Access Plan (LAP)
