Information for interstate and New Zealand staff and students.

How do I apply?

Applications should be made in person to the Information Desk in the Central Library during opening hours.

What documents do I need?

Students will be asked to present a photo ID as well as proof of current enrolment. This could be your enrolment advice form or other proof from your university.

Staff members will be asked to present a photo ID as well as proof of current employment with a university participating in the scheme.

What does it cost?

There is no charge to register and borrow from Flinders University Library.

How long does registration last?

Membership will extend until the 28th of February the following year. Registration can be renewed with proof of enrolment or ongoing employment.

What can I borrow?

You may borrow up to 20 items. These books may be renewed up to 9 times if not requested by another borrower.


Access to many electronic resources is available through public access computers in each library. Off campus acess is not available. Document Delivery requests should be made to the library at which you work or study.

Renewing a loan

Loans will be renewed automatically up to 4 times as long as there are no hold requests placed on the item. When an item is due back, you will receive an email.

The library uses demerit points to support the fair sharing of library resources by encouraging the return of borrowed library items on time. Demerit points will accrue when you return overdue items. Your account will be blocked for 14 days with 20 demerit points.

Non returned, lost or damaged items

You will be invoiced for the replacement cost of these items. If invoices are not paid, details will be sent to the home library which may impose penalties (blocks and sanctions) as that library has indemnified its users to be able to participate in the ULANZ.
