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 material such as encyclopedias as well as CDs, DVDs and videos are not available for loan.

For a fee of $6, the library will attempt to locate the item for you, and will notify you of any additional charges for rare or hard to find items.  Urgent requests can be arranged at an additional cost.  These costs vary depending on the urgency of the request and the methods of dispatch.  Additional delivery charges may be applicable.

University or special libraries place an additional charge of $16.50 per item. Please state on your request if you are willing to pay fees levied by other libraries.

Delivery times will vary depending on the availability of the item at the lending library. 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 also be notified if the library has been unable to fulfil your request.

For further information please contact the Inter-Library Loans Officer on 8762 0222.
