Items from our collection can be borrowed using our self loan machines located on the ground floor and first floor of the Wollongong Library and at the Curriculum Resources Centre.
Our Short Loans collection contains high demand items and equipment for a short loan period (2 hours).
Overnight loans are available for some items. These items can only be borrowed during the final two hours of opening.
Look for the S-shaped shelves in front of the service desk for physical items.
Subject Readings, including Short Loans items, can be found online via our catalogue.
Fines apply for late return of Short Loans items.
Check the UOW libraries guide for information on borrowing at your UOW library.
Holds allow you to place a request on items already on loan.
To place a hold on an item, click the Hold button above the item record and follow the login prompts.
A recall notice will then be emailed to the borrower notifying them of a new due date.
You will be notified by email when the item is available for pickup at Short Loans and you must collect the item within 7 days.
Holds cannot be placed on items that are on loan when there are copies available for loan in the library.
General collection items can be renewed online up to 30 days after their due date. Unlimited renewals are available.
Some items, like Short Loans, equipment or recalled items, are unavailable for renewal.
You can also renew items in person or by phone (02 4221 3545).
