Requesting books & articles

Requesting from other libraries

Bond University staff, postgraduate and undergraduate students can request items such as books and articles that are not held by Bond Library. We will attempt to locate and supply items from other libraries anywhere in the world or from commercial document suppliers. Alumni and Bond University College short course students are not eligible to use this service.

Requests must be related to your teaching, research, study or employment at Bond. 

Requesting books & articles from other libraries in Library Search

Click & Collect requests

If the item you need is on the shelf in the Library or currently on loan to someone else, you can place a Click & Collect request on it via Library Search. A notification will be sent to your Bond University email account when the item is ready for collection at the service desk in the Main or Law Library.

Items that are normally available for loans of 14 days or longer are loaned for 7 days when there is a waiting list to ensure equitable access.

Requests are used to monitor demand on individual titles. Extra copies may be purchased if demand is very high.

If an item you have on loan is requested by someone else it will be automatically recalled. A notification will be sent to your Bond University email account and you will be required to return the item to the library by a specified date. Automatic renewals do not apply to requested items.
