Borrowing from another WA university
Current Curtin students and staff are entitled to borrow in person from the libraries of the University of Western Australia, Edith Cowan University, the University of Notre Dame or Murdoch University.
Due to the current pandemic, other libraries may have restrictions on membership and borrowing. Please check before you approach the library.
You must register online, and will need to show your Curtin ID card and provide your Curtin email address when you first borrow items.
Registration and borrowing are free of charge. Membership is personal and not transferrable. Your borrowing privileges expire on 28 February of the following year. Registration must be renewed each year. Proof of continued enrolment or employment at Curtin is required to renew your registration.
The number of items you may borrow varies across the libraries. You must return borrowed items to the library from which you borrowed them. You cannot return them to Curtin Library.
While using another university’s library, you are bound by their rules and regulations. Penalties and fines for late return of items may be levied. Failure to comply with rules and practices of a host library may result in sanctions at Curtin Library.
If an item is not returned, Curtin Library will eventually be billed for the replacement cost of the item plus an administration cost. Once Curtin has been billed you are required to reimburse to Curtin Library all amounts paid on your behalf even if the item is eventually returned.
Specialist services for clients with disabilities
Each WA university library aims to provide their specialist services, facilities and equipment to students and staff with disabilities and/or medical conditions from the other libraries. Curtin students and staff who need this assistance should register with AccessAbility Services at Curtin.
