Access other non-VU libraries

Victoria University staff and students are also eligible to become reciprocal members of other Australian university libraries under the national borrowing scheme called University Libraries of Australia and New Zealand (ULANZ). By joining the National Borrowing Program, you can use other local academic libraries for study and borrowing. Membership does not usually include access to internet and online resources. Membership fees may apply.

Under the National Borrowing Scheme you also have the opportunity to join the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), the University of Sydney and other University libraries for a cost of A$50.
