You are allowed to borrow up to 10 items (includes books, multimedia etc.) at any time. The loan period for items in the General Collection is 3 weeks. Loans may be renewed for a further two loan periods provided no reservations have been placed on the item. We have a BMDH closed reserve collection that can only be borrowed for 3 days at a time as they are very popular books and need to be shared among students. The Library catalogue can be found at https://helows.intersearch.com.au/


My Details

You can login to the Library Catalogue to access your borrower information, renew loans and check the status of your reservations. You just need your ID which is your membership barcode number and your PIN number which you nominate when you register.
