WA university students & staff

The WA Reciprocal Borrowing Scheme allows all current students and staff from:

  • Curtin University,
  • Edith Cowan University,
  • Murdoch University,
  • The University of Western Australia, and
  • University of Notre Dame Australia

to borrow in person from any of the other libraries under certain conditions.

Before borrowing you must register online. When you want to borrow you will need to provide your university ID card and your university email address to the Enquiries Desk at the Curtin Library you wish to use.

You must borrow the items you want in person, and return materials to the library from which you borrowed them.

Registration and borrowing are free of charge. Membership is personal and not transferrable. Borrowing privileges expire on 28 February of the following year. Proof of continued enrolment or employment is required to renew your registration each year.

You can borrow up to 12 items at a time from Curtin University Library. Some items are not available for loan or have special conditions. You will incur fines if you do not return Curtin Library items by their due date, or if you do not comply with Curtin Library rules. If you do not pay the fines you may be blocked from borrowing at Curtin Library and your own university’s library. Please see renewing an item for renewal information.

If an item is not returned, Curtin Library will bill your home library for the replacement cost of the item plus an administration cost. Once this has happened you will be required to reimburse to your own library any amounts paid on your behalf.

Specialist services for clients with disabilities

The Library aims to provide specialist services, facilities and equipment to students and staff with disabilities and/or medical conditions from other libraries in the scheme. Students and staff who need this assistance should register with the Equity Office of their home institution.
