Many libraries in Australia and overseas have reduced their services in response to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. This may limit USC Library's ability to obtain loans on print books from other libraries.
We will contact you if we are unable to provide the item you have requested. However, please consider requesting an individual chapter (copyright limits apply) from a book as an alternative to requesting the whole work.
USC Library document delivery and inter-library loan service may be used by eligible students & staff to obtain books, journal articles and other resources from external sources for use in research and scholarship activities when the item is not available from the USC Library collections.
Libraries are able to share physical books across the network - these books are available for a set period of time (depending on the lending library). If you feel you will need a book for a lengthy period of time please consider placing a purchase request.
