Reciprocal Borrowing

Staff and students at VU Sydney are also eligible to borrow books from other Australian university libraries by becoming reciprocal members of the national borrowing scheme called University Libraries of Australia and New Zealand (ULANZ). However, some university libraries under the National Borrowing Scheme i.e. University of Technology Sydney (UTS), the University of Sydney charge a fee of A$50 to join their libraries.

View options for joining the scheme and becoming a member at another library.

VU Sydney students may also join the State Library of New South Wales as it is within walking distance of campus. It offers a great study environment as well as regular exhibitions and events.
