What do we mean by 'partner-provider'?
Partner-provider students are studying a FedUni course through an external provider. Many partner-providers have their own libraries and collections, with FedUni Library acting as an extended collection.
How do I obtain FedUni Library materials?
Students need a FedUni student card in order to request hard copy books. If you do not have a FedUni student card, please contact your partner-provider institution. All electronic materials are accessible with your FedUni username and password.
You can request books from the FedUni Library catalogue for delivery to your home institution using the following steps:
- search the Library catalogue
- select the item you want and click on the title to access the full record for the item
- click on the 'Request' button at the top of the page
- enter your username and password
- from the drop-down list, select "postal delivery" as your 'Pickup Location'
- press 'Submit'.
Items will be posted to you at the address in your My Library account. The item will be posted with a Reply Paid return label for you to post back for free before the due date. Please contact us if you would like us to provide a postal bag and label.
