Document Delivery: Interlibrary loans/renewals

Describes document delivery and interlibrary loan service available at Monash University Library

Lost or overdue item?

You will be liable for overdue fines and/or the replacement costs set by the supplying library.

Loans and renewals

Your interlibrary loans (ILLs) are processed the same as your other Monash loans in the library system  however:

  • The bookstrap wrap identifies the item as an interlibrary loan, contains important information and needs to stay with the book for the loan to be removed from your record.
  • The item is filed on the hold shelf with other holds. You can use the Loans machine to borrow.
  • Initial loan period depends on suppliers' due date. Please pick up item as soon as you are notified as item will need to be returned to the supplier at the end of this loan period.
  • You are unable to renew this item yourself via Search.

ILL Renewals

As supplying libraries have different renewal and loan policies, Document Delivery staff have to check before a loan can be renewed. Please request a renewal through My request page or contact Document delivery before the item is due to allow enough time to do this.
