Library services for PIRSA and SARDI staff: Borrowing

This is a guide to Library services and information resources for PIRSA and SARDI staff.

Borrowing from the Library

Staff registered with the Library may borrow personally from any of the University of Adelaide Libraries. 

From MyLibrary you can view the items that you currently have on loan and their Due Date.
 
Items may be recalled after one week.  An item recalled will have the due date changed and you will be notified by email to return the item by the new due date.
 
If you have overdue items, you will receive reminder notices, then you will be invoiced to replace the item, plus a $30 non-refundable handling fee.  High-use items, e.g. recalled items, will be invoiced quickly.  If you can't return your item on time for a particular reason, contact us as soon as possible.

Loan periods and borrowing limits
Books: 50 items [10 week loan, 5 renewals]
Loans may be recalled after 1 week if the book is requested by another user.
Journals: bound volumes only [1 week loan, 5 renewals]

Loan renewals

Loans will be automatically renewed up to to the maximum loan period unless items have been requested.

If the loan can't be renewed, a courtesy notice is sent.  If items have not been returned, another email will be sent on the due date.

Borrowing from other SA libraries

PIRSA/SARDI staff who have a University of Adelaide Library card can borrow personally from the libraries of Flinders University and/or the University of South Australia. Lending rights are restricted.
