Requesting Books


University of Newcastle students located at the Port Macquarie campus are able to request books from the University's other campuses via the Library's Get-It system.

Items can be sent either to the campus library or to a home address. It is recommended that students make a note in the Get-It 'Notes' field to say they are from Port Macquarie.

For more information see the Get-It page.


Staff and Students at Port Macquarie campus are unable to request items from the BONUS+ catalogue directly. Requests for these items can be placed via Get-It, above.
