6 things to note about your Library loans


As a Monash staff or student, you enjoy generous borrowing entitlements. It would be useful to take note of some important things regarding your loans...By Rosemary Miller




1. Borrowing limit

Undergraduates can borrow up to 30 items for two weeks. Postgraduates, honours and staff can have unlimited loans for six weeks.

2. Automatic renewals

Once you have borrowed an item, except for items in high demand or those requested by other users, it will be automatically renewed up to six times.

Pay attention to emails about your loans, as if an item has been requested by someone else, you will be notified to return it.

3. Returning items

You can return items to any of our libraries most convenient to you. Use the return chutes. 

4. Overdue items 

If you have an item that is overdue, you cannot borrow and your loans will not be automatically renewed. You will also incur a fine. 

5. Fines information available

You can see information about any library fines you have accrued to date when you log in to Search and go to “MyLoans".

6. More equitable requests

When you request an item, and the item is currently on the shelf at a library at your pick-up campus, you will not see that campus as a request option. You should go directly to the library shelves and borrow the item yourself. Reducing the time that books spend travelling between campuses and libraries leads to greater availability of books to students and staff in general. 

Off-campus students can request postal loans free of charge through Search.
