CAVAL and National Borrowing Scheme

The CAVAL Reciprocal Borrowing Program is a scheme whereby staff and students of participating academic libraries are able to borrow material from other participating Victorian academic libraries.

University Libraries Australia is a National Borrowing Scheme that allows all staff and students of AVCC member universities to borrow in person from any other interstate university in Australia. Students will be asked to present a photo ID card as well as proof of current enrolment. This could be your enrolment advice form or other proof from your university. Staff members will be asked to present a photo ID card and proof of current employment with a university participating in the scheme, these items are sufficient to allow staff at the Loans Desk to issue an Approved Borrowers card.
