Borrowing from the Library

Borrowing from our Library

To borrow from our Library, go to your public, academic or work library to place a request.

We can't lend directly to you, as we are a reference and research library. Some items are not available for loan. See our Lending Policy.

Borrowing from other libraries

The State Library of NSW is a member of the National and State Libraries Australasia (NSLA) group.

As a user of a NSLA library, how can I borrow from my closest NSLA library?

You can borrow an item from one of the NSLA libraries by completing a request form at the Copying desk or through your public library.

Click the NSLA library to find out how to borrow from them.

Charges apply and prepayment is required. The Australian Interlibrary Resource Sharing Code (ILRS) lists the current charges. There are additional charges for loans from overseas libraries.

See NSLA's Collaborative Lending Prinicples for more information.
