Students are automatically registered to borrow at the library. In order to borrow books you must have your student card.
Borrowing limits for students:
Borrowing at other academic libraries
The CAVAL Reciprocal Borrowing Program allows you to borrow at all Victorian universities and most TAFE institutions. You can search for material at other universities in several online catalogues. CAVAL cards are issued at the service desk and remain valid for the current year, and can be re-authorised in the following year. You need to take a CAVAL card and your student card to others libraries and register to borrow.
Note: penalties incurred at another institution will result in suspension of borrowing rights at the University of Melbourne Library.
We have a reciprocal agreement between the University of Melbourne Library and the Dalton McCaughey Library. To apply for borrowing privileges please see the information desk at the library with which you are already a member.
Borrowing at non-Victorian Universities
The National Borrowing Scheme allows you to borrow at universities outside
Victoria. Consult the National Borrowing
Scheme Site for a list of participating institutions. You will need to
take a photo ID as well as proof of current enrolment at the University. This could be your
enrolment advice form or other proof from your university.
