Inter Library Loans

Before proceeding with an inter library loan request, please check our catalogue to make sure we don’t already have the item.

You can request items from nearly all public libraries in Victoria, and from some university and special libraries.

Requests are made via Library Link Victoria with your Goldfields Library card number and pin.

Charges apply for this service and some special conditions may also apply.

Please note the following items are not available through inter library loans:

  • ALL ITEMS published in the last year (request a new publication below instead)
  • Reference, non-circulating, or not for loan items
  • Not all libraries loan audio visual material

Goldfields Libraries will attempt to obtain your item from another public library, however, in the event that it is only available at a university library, Goldfields staff will contact you before proceeding with the request.

Request a New Publication

Items published in the last year cannot be borrowed via inter library loans, but you can request for them to be purchased by the library. The items must meet our collection management plan. If your suggestion is purchased, a reservation is placed on your behalf.

Please check the catalogue first to see if Goldfields Libraries has the item.

To request a new item to be purchased, click through to the Suggest a Purchase page and enter your borrower number and pin.

Follow this step by step guide to Library Link.
