IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT BORROWING FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY LIBRARY

There are significant fines for the non-return of high demand items and lost material. Items borrowed from the Library (including from the Law and Law Reserch collections) are subject to the fine conditions listed here: http://www.library.usyd.edu.au/borrowing/fines.html.

Overdue and recall notices are sent to students via email but as a courtesy only and the Library does not accept responsibility for the non-receipt of emails. Therefore it is important to regularly log in to My Loans - https://opac.library.usyd.edu.au/patroninfo~S4 - to check the status of your loans.

LIBRARY CARDS

Campus Cards processed a large batch of card applications last week so any new or continuing students who recently submitted an application for a Student ID / Library Card should expect to receive their card shortly. Please contact Campus Cards directly if you have any queries about your application: http://sydney.edu.au/campus-cards/

All students should have a Student ID / Library Card. This card identifies you as a LPAB student and you also need it to borrow items from the University of Sydney Library.

The application form for a Student ID / Library Card can be obtained from the ‘Administration’ section of the LEC website. Your card carries over into each semester in which you are enrolled. You do not need to re-apply for a new card each semester.

DISTANCE STUDENT BORROWING

Could all students using this service please ensure, as per the mailing instructions sent with your books, that all return postage to the Library is marked for the attention of the LPAB Distance Loans Officer? This will ensure that all books are checked in as quickly as possible.
