High Demand & three day loan items
The High Demand collection provides Curtin students with items selected by lecturers as required reading for courses.
Only registered students and staff from Curtin University can borrow from the High Demand collection.
How do I borrow?
You can use the High Demand resources in the High Demand area. If you wish to use them anywhere outside the High Demand area, including the rest of the Library, you will need to borrow them.
You can borrow a maximum of two items for up to two hours at a time. Please note there are larger fines applicable for overdue High Demand items.
Always check your Borrower Information or the My Library tab in OASIS to find out when your items are due to be returned and avoid fines.
You can borrow High Demand items overnight. Overnight loans begin two hours before full service closing time and must be returned at opening time the next day.
Booking High Demand Items
You cannot book High Demand items held at Robertson Library. However, you can book High Demand items at Kalgoorlie Library by contacting staff.
Items must be used in person at the site where the item is held.
Three day loans
Three day loan items are popular course material texts that are only available for short three day loans to ensure as many students as possible have access to them.
These items are shelved in the main collection on levels four, five and six. They are identifiable by the label saying “3 Day Loan” on the spine of the book.
Only registered students and staff from Curtin University can borrow three day loan items.
There are fines for returning three day loan items late.
