I didn’t know that …

… I can get an Inter-Library Loan!

Interlibrary loans available from TAFE NSW Libraries

No matter what you’re studying at TAFE NSW, it’s great to know that you can get a range of items you need. If your current library does not have an item you need you can ask your friendly librarian for an Inter-Library Loan.

An Inter-Library Loan is a loan from another library, posted to the library where you are studying. It is a free service, and the item must be directly related to what your are studying. There are a number of ways to request an inter-library loan:

  1. Ask your librarian in person
  2. Ask your librarian over the phone
  3. Online via the Ask a Librarian Form (Found on the TAFE catalogue and on each LibGuide)

Once the item has arrived you will receive a call to let you know you can pick it up.

Another great service you’ll receive as a student at TAFE NSW.
