Textbook on loan? Three easy ways to borrow from another Library

To borrow from another academic library, you will need a CAVAL card. Ask for this card at any RMIT University Library or the other academic library, when you visit.

RMIT University Library already provides you with access to millions of diverse resources. But did you know that RMIT students can access even more? When your textbook is on loan, or the Library doesn't hold the book or journal article you need, there are three fast and easy ways for you to borrow from other libraries.

Borrow it yourself

When you really need your textbook fast, the best way to access books at other libraries is to borrow them yourself. First, just search the other library catalogues link from our Library homepage to see which other library has the book.

Request online

When the Library does not have the book you need, another option is to request the book using CAVALborrow. Just log into LibrarySearch and search for the book you want.
If we don't hold it, select the CAVALborrow button and choose the RMIT Library site you wish to collect the book from. Simple!

Use Document Delivery Services

If you can't find the item you want using the options above, you can make a Document Delivery Services request.
