Borrowing and membership

While our campus library building remain closed we are posting items to Federation University students and staff and will supply a Reply Paid label for returns. Items in our realia, equipment, reference and Special Collections are not able to be posted.

Borrowers please note:

  • Items in the Textbook collection can only be borrowed by Federation University students and staff and are subject to reduced borrowing periods if in high demand.

Due dates, returning and renewing library items

Provided no hold(s) have been placed on the item(s), and you have no long overdue items, the items you have borrowed will be automatically renewed. You can check the status of your loans anytime via your My Library login or the MyLibrary! app.

If you need assistance, get in touch with our InfoPoint team:

You can return your library items by:

  • placing them in the designated book return chutes at Berwick, Gippsland, Mt Helen and SMB
