The Catalogue can be used to find and borrow items held at libraries within the Western Sydney Local Health District, Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District and The Sydney Children's Hospitals Network. Use the Catalogue to search for items, see what books you have on loan, reserve items from another library to be picked up at your facility library and more.

Some items such as closed reserve and reference books have different loan periods. 

You can reserve an item from another library to be picked up at your Facility library by logging in to the Catalogue or by contacting us.
