Interlibrary Loan / Suggestion for Purchase 

Looking for an item that Geelong Regional Libraries doesn't have? We can borrow items from other libraries for you!

For items published or released more than 3 years ago, you can submit a request for an interlibrary loan using the interlibrary loan form. Our staff will search for the item at other public libraries in Victoria before searching in other states and academic institutions*.

If the item that you would like to borrow is less than 3 years old please submit a purchase suggestion form. The Collections team will review your suggestion in accordance with our Collection Development Policy. If the item is not purchased a note will be left on your library account to inform you that it was not available.

Please note that while we welcome requests for new magazine titles, additions to the library’s magazine collection are only reviewed on an annual basis.

A separate form is required for each title you wish to suggest. Submissions containing multiple titles may not be processed.

Due to Covid-19 lockdowns across the country there may be significant delays in obtaining new items and Interlibrary Loans

Interlibrary Loan*
Please note that fees from $2.50 apply for interlibrary loan.

Request Form

We are able to source items from Victorian and interstate public libraries as well as many Australian University libraries.

Please indicate if you are willing for an Interlibrary Loan request being placed on your behalf if it can't be purchased, and accept that this loan will incur a Interlibrary Loan fee as indicated here.

*Every effort will be made to source your request from a Victorian public library before we proceed to a higher fee tier.
