Postal Loans

If you are unable to come to campus and need to consult an entire book or item that cannot be sent using Scan and Send, you can request that the item be delivered to you by post.

Requests may take up to two weeks to process and are limited to five items per person. Some of our physical items may be reference only, unavailable, too large, fragile or valuable to deliver by post.

Step 2 – Postal Loans form

Complete the Postal Loans request form.

Step 3 – Receiving the items

The items will be sent directly to your postal address and may take up to two weeks to arrive. If we are unable to complete your request for any reason we will let you know
