Document Delivery

You found this really great article but can’t access it via the Library’s electronic subscriptions – what can you do? Allow Library staff to source it for you via our Document Delivery service! Read on to find out Paula Todd

Who can use it?
Monash University Library has a service for staff, postgraduate and honours students where we can source material for you, from around the world if necessary, and deliver it via a link to your inbox.

What can be requested?
In addition to electronic articles sourced from non-Monash libraries, copies of print only material held at other Monash branch libraries can also be supplied.  Document Delivery also obtain loans of items from Australian and overseas libraries.

How do I use it?
The online form is available via a link on the Library tab in your portal (look under Services) or from the Library website.

If you are using Search and the article or journal is not held by Monash, a link to the Document Delivery request form will appear in the “view it” tab which should pre-populate the request form with most of the information about the article.

Where do I collect them from?
Electronically sourced items or scanned printed items such as articles will be sent via a link or as an attachment to your Monash email address.

Physical items such as books and other materials will be sent to the nominated Monash branch library for collection. If you are registered as off-campus, items may be sent to your off-campus Department location or home address.

Please see our library guide for much more information about document delivery and interlibrary loans.

What happens for undergraduate students?
If you are an undergraduate student you can visit any participating Victorian academic library* and borrow books or photocopy print articles in person.  Before you go make sure you have registered for a CAVAL card at one of the Monash branch libraries and have checked the opening hours of the library you wish to visit.  Note that this reciprocal agreement does not allow for electronic access to other libraries. See CAVAL for more information and the list of participating libraries.
