Request an item on loan

If an item I want is out on loan, can I request it?

University Library members can request items on loan by signing into OneSearch.

  • Search for the item you want to request.
  • Select the 'Not available - click for more details' link beneath the title information for that item.
  • Select 'Request item'
  • Select Library Pickup Location.
  • Select 'Next'
  • A confirmation note will appear.

As soon as you place a request the item will be due back in 7 days (or 10 days if the current borrower resides outside Perth). You will be notified when your item is ready for pickup and you can check its progress in My Library Account.  A requested University Library item is held for you in the library for 4 days. If you are unable to pick up your requested item in time, contact the library, we may be able to extend the pickup period.

Note: if another member has also requested the item, your loan will be restricted to 3 days to allow equitable access to the item.
