What is Document Delivery all about?

We source items from library collections around Australia and the world in order to provide staff and students at Federation University Australia with items not held by our own library or available through the BONUS+ system. We obtain copies and loans of articles, books, theses & sometimes other library items that FedUni & BONUS+ don't have.

You are eligible for this service if you are FedUni:

  • Staff
  • PhD students
  • Masters students
  • Graduate Diploma/Certificate students
  • Authorised special request authorised (i.e. 4th-year / Honours undergraduates) (excluding inter-library loans of books)

What can I request?

You can request:

  • books, conference papers, proceedings, theses and multimedia in hardcopy for loan (called inter-library loans) where neither FedUni nor BONUS+ has a copy available*
  • printed or PDF copies of material not held in a FedUni campus library (book chapters, journal articles, theses)
  • printed or PDF copies of print-only material held at any FedUni campus library (i.e. a journal article from a journal in closed access, or an article from a journal only available in print at campus you are not located at). For copies from other campuses of FedUni see Intercampus Copies.

* Inter-library loans are not available for authorised special requesters (4th-year/Honours students, etc.)

FAQ

Are there any charges that I need to be aware of?

No. There's an allocation from the Library's materials budget for document delivery services so the cost of obtaining requests isn't passed on to you.

I'm a TAFE/Undergraduate student. Can I use document delivery? *

No, not for obtaining material from other libraries. If you are having difficulty obtaining enough quality information to support your assignments from material within the Library collection and open access resources, please contact the Information Desk for advice.

If you need to get a copy of a journal article that is only in print at another campus, this can be supplied to you. See the tab, Intercampus copies.

* There is provision for certain requests for 4th year/honours undergraduate ​students with authorisation. This extends to electronic copies of material but not inter-library loans of physical items (books, etc.).
