Inter-library Loans

If Strathfield Library does not hold an item you require, the library can attempt to borrow the item from other public libraries via the Interlibrary Loans Service. Most printed material can be obtained on an inter-library loan, however each lending library has its own policy regarding the lending of certain material.

Reference and Local Studies material may be limited to in library use only.


Interlibrary loan fee                                 $6.00 per item

University or Special Library fee             $17.00 per item

Addition fee                                                  

  • Addition fees vary depending on each request
  • Additional charges apply for rare or hard to find items.
  • Urgent requests can be arranged at an additional cost. 
  • Please state on your request if you are willing to pay fees levied by other libraries.

Delivery times

Delivery times will vary depending on the availability of the item. Every effort is made to obtain the material in as short a period as possible.

Strathfield Library will contact you when the item arrives and is ready for collection.

You will be notified if the library has been unable to fulfill your request.
