Introduction

The Document Services Unit supplies materials to libraries worldwide. You can search findit@flinders, our online catalogue, for the library's holdings. We will lend most books, dvds and microform items from our collection.
Individuals from academic institutions or corporations may order items through their library's Inter-library loan or document delivery service. Members of the public may place orders through their local library.
