Interlibrary loan

Avondale Libraries have an ever increasing collection of print and online resources, but we also understand that you may be researching a topic that may not be comprehensively covered in our collection.

While we cannot do the research for you, we can obtain resources you have found which are held in other libraries. You may borrow books from other libraries in Australia and request journal articles to a maximum of 10 items per year.

Please see our Interlibrary Loan page for more information.
