Interlibrary Loans Return

Great news! Libraries Victoria loans are returning on a trial basis

We know inter-library (Libraries Victoria) loans are valued by our members and we are delighted to announce the service will return on a trial basis until 31 July.

There are some changes to the service:

  • Deliveries will occur weekly. Consolidating materials and moving them more efficiently allows us to continue offering the widest range of resources for our members. This may lead to a slightly longer wait, but ensures we are able to keep the service free.
  • A limit of 20 inter-library loan requests per user will apply at any one time.
  • New release titles may not be available via inter-library loans. If Latrobe City Libraries do not have a new release title in our local collection, please consider using our purchase request service instead. Note that purchased items may take considerable time to be delivered.
  • Borrowing from within the Libraries Victoria network remains free. However, if you want to request an item from outside of the network, fees may apply.
  • This trial will run until 31 July. 

Make an inter-library loan

If you would like to make an inter-library loan visit the catalogue page on our website or speak with a library staff member in your local branch.

How you can help

  • Please collect your inter-library loans when ordered, or cancel if they are no longer required. Uncollected items account for more than 10% of our costs.
  • Please return items to the library you borrowed them from where possible as this will also help reduce costs.
  • If you have multiple library memberships, check what conditions apply as they may vary from library to library.
