Information about borrowing from the Library for off campus students of the University of Newcastle

Off campus students

Postal Borrowers

Students living outside the Newcastle/ Lake Macquarie/ Central Coast/ Maitland/ Cessnock/ Port Stephens local government areas may request items to be sent to them via post. However, items requested can only be posted to an Australian address.

Requesting books and journal articles

To request books and journal articles see the Interlibrary Loan information on the Borrowing from other libraries page. Postal Borrowers initial due date is extended to allow for postage time - any consequent renewal is the same as for any other student.

You can also become a member and borrow from other Universities' libraries.

Library material you are unable to borrow:

  • 1 week loans or Course Reserves
  • Archives, Rare Books & Special Collections
  • Items missing from the shelves
  • BONUS+

Renewing Loans

Renew your loans online via MyLibrary. Loans may be renewed during opening hours on 4921 5850.

Returning Loans

Return items by mail in padded envelopes to the Auchmuty Library. Allow enough time for return by the date due as fines will apply on overdue items. A return postbag is supplied and funded by SSAF.
