Did you know that Curtin staff and postgraduates are able to access resources beyond the Library’s own electronic and physical collections? You can request a loan or a copy of items from other libraries in Australia and around the world by using the Library’s document delivery and interlibrary loan service! If you can’t find what you’re looking for, we may be able to source the item for you from elsewhere.

A look back to 2018 shows that of the 1668 requests we received, 95.5% were satisfied with the result. From this, 282 titles were already part of our collection or freely available online, 109 requests were complex to source, and 85 new items were purchased and added to our permanent collection. 76 requests were not filled because they could not be identified in other library collections or restrictions on the other libraries prevented them from being supplied.

If you’d like to find out more about this service or would like to place a request of your own, please visit the Library’s Document Delivery page.
